How it works

Becoming a public drop-off location is an easy and efficient way to collect health and nutrition packaging in your community and build the national recycling network. 

Businesses, colleges, preschools and daycares, municipalities, community organizations, gyms, and medical offices are encouraged to sign up.

After acceptance to the program, the address listed with your account will post to the public map of drop-off locations on the RB Health & Nutrition Recycling Program page so that individuals and community members can easily find you. Individuals and community members can drop off their collections with you, and you will be able to ship the packaging your location collects to TerraCycle for free and earn TerraCycle points for your shipments.

You can use any collection or recycling bin for collecting at your location. To maximize engagement and visibility, place in a high-traffic area with the Program Flier. Once you are ready to ship, download a prepaid UPS shipping label and affix it to any empty box to send to TerraCycle for recycling. 

We want to help you turn your public drop-off point into a successful local recycling solution for your community, so we are here to provide resources and guidance. If you need to update your drop-off address, please contact TerraCycle Customer Support.

Best practices for recycling

  • Ensure all excess product liquids, such as medicines and topicals, have been removed.
  • If you choose to rinse your products, note they must be completely dry prior to shipping. UPS will not accept dripping packages.

What happens to the waste

Once collected, the waste is broken down and separated by material. Plastics are cleaned and pelletized, and metals are melted down.

Rewards

TerraCycle points can be redeemed for a variety of charitable gifts or a payment of $0.01 per point to the non-profit organization or school of your choice.
