The Sales Associate will build partnerships with commercial brands, manufacturers, retailers and distributors.
TerraCycle is the world leader in the collection and recycling of post-consumer waste that is generally considered “non-recyclable.” In over 20 countries, we collect billions of pieces of waste, mostly made up of plastic packaging that is otherwise destined for landfill or incineration. By collecting coherent waste streams (millions of chip bags, millions of drink pouches, millions of safety glasses, etc.), we are able to use third party facilities to recycle these waste streams into a format that can be used by third party manufacturers.
Our business is largely funded by the major consumer brands of the world (Kraft Foods, Colgate-Palmolive, L’Oreal, PepsiCo, etc.), which pay us to operate post-consumer collection programs. These collection programs render the brand’s previously non-recyclable packaging or products nationally recyclable. TerraCycle also works with the manufacturing facilities and packaging suppliers for these large brands to recycle their pre-consumer waste. This results in the collection of millions of pounds of post-industrial waste that TerraCycle can process and sell into one of many end-product applications.
Over the last couple of years, TerraCycle has pioneered another business unit called “Zero Waste Boxes.” These boxes are designed to be all-inclusive, turn-key recycling solutions for the specific waste stream(s) that are generated at businesses and other sites. This is the fastest-growing business unit inside our global organization, and we are looking for a talented individual to continue selling this unique product range at a high level.
The Zero Waste team is looking for a Sales Associate in Toronto, Canada to help expand the Zero Waste Box Program through various marketing and sales strategies. The Sales Associate will build partnerships with commercial brands, manufacturers, retailers and distributors. Additionally, the associate will be responsible for building and managing a pipeline, scheduling presentations, and working with other departments to craft and develop sales resources to further the sales process.
