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 the waste?

The recycling of latex paint involves the separation of water and solids in the paint. The water and solids are then run through and extruder where the water is stripped as water vapor and the solids are melted and formed into pellets. The pellets can be used as a base for colorants or as additives to other recycled polymers.

Accepted waste

Wet or dry excess latex based paint. Paint colors can be mixed together. 

Please do NOT...
