How we recycle
When we receive your TerraCycle Pouch, we check it in and sort out anything that isn't accepted waste.
The consolidated materials are shredded, cleaned, and processed.

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 size-reduced through shredding and 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.
