TerraCycle® has developed recycling solutions for waste that would otherwise end up in a landfill as the majority of local UK councils can't recycle it.
There are large costs associated with running the programmes and the processing of these hard-to-recycle materials. Therefore, we partner with different brands to fund the collection of different waste streams (e.g. Tassimo sponsors coffee pods and packaging recycling, Febreze sponsors air and home care recycling and Walkers sponsors crisp packet recycling). This sponsorship not only funds the entire cost of recycling this difficult-to-recycle material but in almost every case, it also provides a charity contribution for every item of waste collected.
If we do not offer a free recycling programme for your chosen waste category, it means that we are yet to come across any companies who are willing to pay for the recycling of this specific waste. However, please don't hesitate to recommend our services to a brand so that we can offer a recycling solution for this waste category in the UK.
Alternatively, you may be interested in purchasing one of our Zero Waste Boxes™, a complete and convenient solution which includes the storage, shipping and recycling of a particular type of waste that isn’t currently recycled through local council facilities.
The Zero Waste Boxes™ can be used to recycle over 70 different waste categories including all plastic packaging, safety equipment, lanyards and coffee capsules - amongst others! They are suitable for hospitality areas, homes, offices, stores, warehouses, community spaces, processing or other types of facilities! For more information, please visit the Zero Waste Box™ website.
