Sadly, some trash is unavoidable. While curbside recycling and reducing your waste at home can have a huge impact on what ends up in landfills, some types of waste need a specialty recycling center to get the job done.
With TerraCycle's Zero Waste Boxes, you can collect your hard-to-recycle materials, and ship them to TerraCycle for free! Terracycle will then properly recycle the items. With the Bedroom Zero Waste Box, you can recycle assorted bedroom items like books, personal care, packaging, luggage, and tons more household items that would otherwise be headed to the landfills!
How to TerraCycle: Choose your size and type of Zero Waste Box. When you receive your box, fill it with the corresponding waste. Once full, ship your box back to TerraCycle using the free, prepaid shipping label which will already be on your box. When they receive your box, they'll safely recycle all of the collected materials!

This has been so helpful and gives peace of mind while I clear out a house after a family death. I try to prevent items from going to the landfill and there are simply some items that can't be donated or given away that belong in this box.
Pricey but has been extremely helpful when cleaning out a house after a family death. I am doing my best to prevent items from going to a landfill and not everything can be given away or donated. This really helps me feel better about the process.
