How it works

TerraCycle Zero Waste Boxes allow you to recycle almost every type of waste. Simply follow the steps below to recycle your waste with us and make a positive impact on our planet. 

What happens to your recyclables?

The collected waste is mechanically and/or manually separated into metals, fibers, and plastics. Metals are melted so they may be recycled. The fibers (such as paper or wood based products) are recycled or composted. The plastics undergo extrusion and pelletization to be molded into new recycled plastic products.

Accepted waste

Kitchen gear including utensils, cups, mugs, plates, bowls, pitchers, trays, can openers, bottle openers, soap dispensers, Tupperware, cutting boards, pots, measuring tools, pans, skillets, grills, steamers, and strainers.

Please do NOT...

include electronics such as coffee makers, toasters and disposable dishware.
