How it works

Participating is completely free and very easy.

What you can recycle

Program accepted waste: ONLY #6 rigid plastic cups

Best practices for recycling

In order to recycle this waste stream properly, please make sure all excess product has been removed (i.e. leftover liquid). Additionally, if you choose to rinse your product, please note that it must be completely dry prior to shipping. You cannot ship dripping packages.

What happens to your recyclables

Once collected, the cups are cleaned and melted into hard plastic that can be remolded to make new recycled products. Click here to learn more about the recycling process.


The greatest reward is a clean planet! There is no TerraCycle point incentive for this program; however, you may continue to participate and recycle your cups completely for free.
