How we recycle
When we receive your TerraCycle Pouch, we check it in and sort out anything that isn't accepted waste.
Materials are size-reduced, and carbon filter media is removed through screening

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.
