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 Plastic Packaging Box, you can recycle plastic packaging material such as food containers for infants, non-recyclable baking packing/muffin tins, ingredients packaging, bubble wraps, padded envelopes, Styrofoam peanuts, air bags, pallet liners and covers, shrink wrap, cushioning, tissue paper packaging, foam sheets, foam planks, spices packaging, cereal bags, coffee bags made out of burlap, fresh seal bags. Any single serving packs, plastic containers for food or condiments, packaging for dried products, egg cartons, energy bar wrappers, frozen food bags and packaging, pasta packaging, frozen pizza packaging, gum packaging, freezer bags, grocery bags, ice bags, trash bags, meat packaging, drink mix packaging and wrappers!
