TerraCycle is an eco-friendly recycling company that has become a global leader in recycling typically non-recyclable waste.
TerraCycle offers a range of free programs that are funded by conscientious companies, as well as recycling solutions available for purchase for almost every form of waste.
TerraCycle offers free recycling programs funded by brands, manufacturers, and retailers around the world to help you collect and recycle your hard-to-recycle waste. Simply choose the programs you’d like to join; start collecting in your home, school, or office; download free shipping labels; and send us your waste to be recycled. You can even earn rewards for your school or favorite non-profit!
TerraCycle’s Zero Waste Box™ platform allows you to recycle almost any type of waste, from your coffee capsules to complex laboratory waste. Choose the waste stream you’d like to recycle, purchase your preferred box size, collect your waste, and send it to TerraCycle to be repurposed (shipping is included). Zero Waste Boxes are available for purchase via our Zero Waste Box website and many major retailers.
TerraCycle partners with many municipalities around the world to bring zero waste solutions that range from city-wide programs for recycling cigarette butts to curbside programs to recycle hard-to-recycle materials.
TerraCycle partners with many manufacturing facilities around the world to help recycle hard-to-recycle waste at the facility level. Our programs range from helping to recycle large volumes of packaging scrap to personal safety equipment. We also provide zero waste consulting and closed-loop R&D support.
TerraCycle recycles and upcycles waste instead of incinerating or landfilling it, which is a significantly better solution for waste than traditional methods. We also provide “waste” with a new life, creating usable new products out of items that would have simply been thrown out.
