How we recycle
When we receive your TerraCycle Pouch, we check it in and sort out anything that isn't accepted waste.
The footwear is shredded, and the materials are sorted into categories (synthetic fibers, foams, and leather).
The 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.
Footwear is shredded, and the materials are separated by density through air- and water-based mechanical sortation into synthetic fibers, foams, and leather. Fibers are then sold for use in applications such as composite decking. Foams and leathers are granulated for use in flooring applications.
