When the TerraCycle Pouch is full, seal it, then scan the QR code or log in to your account to schedule a pickup. Place the TerraCycle Pouch in your collection box or at your doorstep, and we’ll pick it up at the scheduled time.

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

Materials are size reduced and carbon filter media removed through screening. Carbon is then used as a colorant for plastic masterbatch production. Shredded plastics are cleaned in temperature-regulated water baths with agitation and surfactants to remove residual carbon or other contaminants. Clean, sorted plastics are then blended with other plastics to make recycled plastic blends which are then used by various manufacturers to make new products.
