Recycling the Unrecyclable

Recycling the Unrecyclable

TerraCycle offers a number of recycling options, from free programs funded by companies, to solutions that can be purchased – like the Zero Waste Box . This program allows recyclers to choose from over 100 affordable single waste stream options. A manufacturing facility might opt for a single solution box to collect and recycle disposal plastic gloves. A corporation might choose to focus only on collecting coffee capsules or go for an all-encompassing solution like the All-In-One Zero Waste Box. This option accepts a wide range of waste with the exception of food or hazardous materials. The process is simple – choose a waste stream to recycle, purchase one of several box sizes, collect the waste and send it to TerraCycle. Shipping is included in the purchase price.
