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 Alkaline Batteries Box, you can recycle alkaline batteries only. Please place tape over ends of batteries to prevent current transfer.
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!
Size: 11" x 11" x 20"
Packaging: In order to protect the box during shipment, your TerraCycle box will be wrapped in a plastic bag. When you receive your box, just put the plastic bag inside and TerraCycle will ensure it gets recycled properly!
