Most local curbside recycling programs only accept paper and cardboard, glass, metals like aluminum, and rigid plastics. So what do you do with all of the other trash your community accumulates? You recycle it with TerraCycle!

You can bring TerraCycle to your town in a number of ways:

  1. Set up a TerraCycle drop-off point

A TerraCycle public drop-off point is a community hub where people can drop off their trash to be recycled through select TerraCycle free recycling programs, including:

If your town is on board to start recycling more, ask them to set up drop-off points around your community in places like municipal buildings and public libraries. Through drop-off points, your town can collect trash like drink pouches, razors, and Taco Bell® Sauce Packets to be recycled for free through TerraCycle! When your box is full, simply ship it back to us with the prepaid shipping label. Your town will earn TerraCycle points that can be donated to the community nonprofit organization, charity, or school of your choosing. 

  1.  Set up a town-wide TerraCycle account for free recycling programs

One account manager can join our free recycling programs and manage a network of local businesses looking to recycle. Your local businesses can set up collection bins, and when their bin is full, they can request a free shipping label from your TerraCycle account.

Your account manager will provide the business with the free label they requested so they can ship their trash to TerraCycle to be recycled! Our free recycling programs recycle everything from pet food bags, beauty products, household cleaning and cookware products, food packaging, and more!

  1. Purchase Zero Waste Boxes

Work with your town officials to set up Zero Waste Boxes in your community! Zero Waste Boxes can #RecycleEverything from beauty products, oral care products, plastic packaging, and more.

You can even partner with school clubs and local nonprofits to fundraise for the boxes so your town can take on a green initiative. Shop Zero Waste Boxes here.
