Each TerraCycle Pouch is opened upon receipt and visually inspected for any non-compliant materials, then consolidated for processing in bulk.

The 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. Plastics are cleaned in temperature-regulated water baths with agitation and surfactants to remove residual product or other contaminants. 

The clean 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.
