Recycle tape dispensers and cores through this program.
TerraCycle® and Scotch® Tape have partnered to create a free recycling program for tape dispensers and cores, as well as a fundraising opportunity for participants.
We regret to inform you that the Scotch Tape Recycling Program will be closing on October 31, 2016. You will be unable to download or request shipping labels after this date. Additionally, any waste received and checked in after this date will not receive the TerraCycle point donation.
If you would like to continue recycling this waste stream after October 31, 2016, you may purchase the Office Supplies Zero Waste Box
Participating is completely free and very easy.
Program accepted waste: Plastic tape dispensers and cores
In order to recycle this waste stream properly, please make sure all excess product has been removed (i.e. leftover tape). Additionally, if you choose to rinse your product, please note that it must be completely dry prior to shipping. You cannot ship dripping packages.
Once collected, the tape dispensers and tape cores are cleaned, shredded, and melted into new recycled products. Click here to learn more about the recycling process.
TerraCycle points can be redeemed for a variety of charitable gifts, product bundles, or a payment of $0.01 per point to the non-profit organization or school of your choice. To learn more about our points program, click here.
