Art supplies, new uniforms, instruments, and the spring musical—fundraising for your school can be tough, but it doesn’t have to be. You can earn cash for school simply by recycling and fundraising with TerraCycle! When you recycle with us, you earn points for each shipment of hard-to-recycle trash you send in. These points can then be redeemed in the form of a donation to your school! And better yet—you’ll help inspire the next generation of recyclers.
From snack packaging to beauty products to toys, there are all kinds of free recycling programs for your school to participate in! Find the programs that are perfect for your school. Join as many as you want and earn points for each valid shipment.
Teachers are everyday superheroes—but fundraising for your classroom shouldn’t take superpowers. That’s why TerraCycle is here to help! Check out some of our recycling resources to get your students and staff started. You’ll be super-recyclers before you know it!
Want to show off your recycling skills? We can help you get noticed through a local, regional, or even national press release! You can also use the sharable social media graphics on our Resources page to spread the word about your recycling journey. Click here to tell us all about how you’re bringing TerraCycle to your classroom.
Get even more involved with our contests. By participating in our free recycling programs, you can win extra TerraCycle Recycling Rewards points and even upcycled or recycled products! Keep an eye on our Contests and Promotions page to stay involved.
Plus, now through the end of the school year, K-12 schools earn TRIPLE the rewards for all valid shipments in select recycling programs! Details here.
