TerraCycle, Staples Expand Zero-Waste Recycling Program

TerraCycle Zero Waste BoxRecycling company TerraCycle and Staples are expanding their zero-waste recycling option for household and office waste to the US.

The recycling program launched in Canada in 2014. The program allows customers to recycle a range of items, including candy and snack wrappers, cleaning supplies and accessories, writing utensils, e-waste and mailing, shipping and packaging supplies, through TerraCycle’s Zero Waste Boxes, sold on Staples.com.

The program works like this: offices or households fill a box, then mail it to TerraCycle with the prepaid shipping label. The purchase price of the box ($82.99) includes shipping back to TerraCycle and the processing of the waste. TerraCycle will turn the waste into a plastic that can be recycled into benches, bicycle racks, watering cans and other items.

Globally, TerraCycle has repurposed more than 2.5 billion pieces of food and beverage waste, office and school supply waste, e-waste and other hard to recycle items such as discarded cigarette filters. These collections have helped raise more than $7 million for US charities and schools through various packaging reclamation programs.

  1. I basicly get what you are trying to say but thats exactly the kind of thinking that has us in the situation we are today. We say something is too expensive to protect the earth like there is an alternative. There is after all still only one planet. Once its stuffed, so are we. How about we foot the bill first and then see after that what other luxuries we can afford. Its no different than budgeting for your house. Get your living expenses sorted first, then see what you can do with the rest.
