TerraCycle® is the global social business Eliminating the Idea of Waste®. 

We create first-of-their-kind solutions to tackle the issue from many angles – from recycling the non-recyclable, to integrating unique materials into new products, to transforming packaging from disposable to durable – with the help of our sponsoring partners.

If you are interested in funding a sustainability platform and working with us to drive change, please review our different partnership opportunities below. 

If you are looking to participate in an existing program, browse our National Recycling Programs here.

Are you a brand or manufacturer?

Make your products and packaging nationally recyclable: TerraCycle creates national programs allowing consumers to recycle typically non-recyclable items such as flexible plastic pouches, toothbrushes, cigarette butts, and cosmetics packaging, to name just a few. We then work with your brand to leverage this platform and drive tangible marketing and sales ROI.

Integrate unique “storied” recycled material into your packaging: TerraCycle can develop custom supply chains to collect, process, and supply unique recycled materials that tell a story – from beach plastic to festival waste and more – for integration in your brand’s primary packaging. From there, our team works with you to leverage this story to generate sales lifts, incremental display space, positive earned media placements, and marketing buzz.

TerraCycle’s latest innovation, Loop, is a reuse platform that enables our partners – from the world’s largest consumer brands to the newest start-ups – to rethink and design out of disposability while maintaining the convenience and affordability of disposable items.

Embed diagnostics capabilities into your offering: Would you like to find out if your products can, at their end of life, deliver useful health and wellness insights for your consumers?

Are you a retailer or distributor?

Bring recycling to life in or out of store: TerraCycle can boost your sustainability endeavors at retail while driving foot traffic, brand awareness, and more with a variety of formats tailored to your priorities and goals with specialized teams to support:

  • Contact us here to fund a turnkey in-store collection program. TerraCycle works with you to create emotionally engaging activations to communicate your brand’s sustainability efforts in-store and to drive foot traffic, positive publicity, consumer engagement, and other ROI. These programs traditionally involve mobilizing your retail employees to send collected items back to us via small-parcel shipping.  
  • Contact us here for one-off, take-back collection programs funded by retailers to collect large-volume or bulkier items, such as car seats, for a short-term promotion tied to a consumer incentive. TerraCycle works with you to custom-design a promotion to drive foot traffic, positive publicity, coupon redemption, and other ROI.
  • For facilities or distribution center recycling solutions, please click the next section: Are you a facility, office, restaurant, or other physical location (i.e. factory, distribution center, or other place of work)?

Bring a waste-free shopping experience to your stores and online platforms by enabling durability in your retail environment with Loop: Loop's retail integration allows consumers to access Loop in-store and through e-commerce. Any retailer – small or large, physical or digital – can embed the Loop model into their stores and enable a circular supply chain for their shoppers. Retailers can also work with the Loop team to bring reusability to their own private label products alongside Loop's existing brand partners.
