Collect with large TerraCycle Pouches

Recycle shoes and footwear by using our large TerraCycle Pouch. Make sure to check off the "Shoes and footwear" checkbox on the front of the pouch. When the pouch is full, seal it, then scan the QR code or log in to your account to schedule a pickup. Place the TerraCycle Pouch on your doorstep. Casella will pick it up at the scheduled time, and TerraCycle will recycle everything inside.

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.
