Once collected, the disposable cups, lids, straws, candy and snack wrappers, and coffee and creamer capsules are cleaned and separated by material type. The materials are recycled into raw formats that manufacturers use to make new products. Click here to take a virtual tour of our processing facilities.
As a part of the Subaru Loves the Earth initiative, the collected waste streams will be turned into useful, high-quality recycled products, like park benches, picnic tables, and playground materials. These products will be donated to Subaru community partners of more than 616 participating local retailers.
Subaru Loves the Earth and is dedicated to making our world a more sustainable place.
Today, it’s a disposable cup or snack wrapper. Tomorrow, it could be a bench outside your local school. Over the past five years, participating Subaru retailers have been at the center of an effort to collect hard-to-recycle trash that would normally go into a landfill. Subaru has partnered with TerraCycle to keep this waste out of landfills and transform it into useful goods that benefit our communities, and it’s making a difference.
This collective effort of Subaru and its retailers demonstrates their commitment to fulfilling the Subaru Love Promise to make the world a better place. It takes more than a car dealer to make it happen – it takes a Subaru retailer. Together, we’re making a difference in our communities and our world.
