How we recycle
When we receive your TerraCycle Pouch, we check it in and sort out anything that isn't accepted waste.
All materials are size-reduced through shredding. Metals are smelted and plastics are cleaned, sorted, and blended with other plastics as necessary.
After processing, the raw materials are used to make new products, including items that will benefit your local community.

Each TerraCycle Pouch is opened upon receipt and visually inspected for any non-compliant materials, then consolidated for processing in bulk.
The consolidated materials are then manually sorted into categories based on predominant material makeup and secondary stage mechanical processing requirements. Items containing electrical components are manually disassembled to separate materials by predominant composition.
All materials are size-reduced through shredding. Metals are then removed through magnetized and electrostatic sortation. Sorted metals are smelted and formed for use in secondary metals manufacturing. Rigid plastics are then sorted by density profile and composition through multi-stage air, optical, and water-based mechanical sortation systems. Clean, sorted plastics are mixed with other plastics to make recycled plastic blends that are then used by various manufacturers to make new products.
