You are here


TerraCycle is eliminating the idea of waste, a global leader in recycling typically ‘non-recyclable’ discarded items. The company offers free recycling programs funded by brands, manufacturers, and retailers all around the world to help collect and recycle hard-to-recycle waste. To date, over 202 million people in 21 countries have collected billions of pieces of waste, raising over 44 million dollars for charities around the world.

TerraCycle offers a Zero Waste Box™ platform that allows people to purchase a collection box and choose a waste stream they would like to recycle, which is then collected to be repurposed. TerraCycle also 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. On a larger scale, such as stadiums or city-wide venues, TerraCycle also collaborates on strategic partnerships to establish recycling programs.

Solutions for industrial waste are also offered, as TerraCycle partners with many manufacturing facilities around the world to help recycle hard-to-recycle waste at a facility level. The programs range from handling large volumes of packaging scrap to personal safety equipment, and other service offerings incluse zero-waste consulting and closed-loop R&D support. Their regulated waste division provides products and services to help you facilitate the effective and compliant management of regulated, universal and hazardous waste. This may include fluorescent lamps, bulbs, batteries, and e-waste as well as organic waste, medical waste and other waste streams that are potentially harmful to the environment.

TerraCycle is dedicated to solving for waste, advocating for reusing, upcycling, recycling, composting and closed loop solutions, creating new life out of things destined for landfill or incineration.
