How we recycle
When we receive your TerraCycle Pouch, we check it in and sort out anything that isn't accepted waste.
The materials are separated into categories (metals, paper, and plastic) based on processing requirements.

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.
All materials are size-reduced through shredding. Metals are removed through magnetized and electrostatic sortation. Sorted metals are then smelted and formed for use in secondary metals manufacturing.
The materials 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. Clean, sorted papers are pulped and used in paper-based sheeting.
