HOW IT WORKS
When you receive your box fill it with the appropriate waste streams. Once full, bring your box to your local Post Office to ship your items back to TerraCycle using the pre-paid shipping label which is already affixed to your box. When we receive your box, we'll safely recycle all of the collected materials.
WHAT IS INCLUDED
Zero Waste Boxes Include:
Colour printed shipping box
Pre-paid return shipping label
Processing of waste
Please send us your used beard and hair nets.
Please be extra vigilant to ensure no gloves/hairnets that have been in contact with any substances referred to below (which includes anything classified as toxic, infectious, pathogenic) are placed within the Zero Waste Boxes.
We do not accept household hazardous waste such as lithium ion batteries, pressurized canisters, pesticides, paint or medical sharps nor any item that is or has come into contact with anything classified as flammable, reactive, corrosive, ignitable, radioactive, toxic, infectious, or pathogenic.
The collected waste is mechanically and/or manually separated into metals, fibres, and plastics. Metals are smelted so they may be recycled. The plastics undergo extrusion and pelletisation to be moulded into new recycled plastic products.
