Collect with small TerraCycle Pouches

Recycle wires and cords by using our small TerraCycle Pouch. Make sure to check off the “Wires & Cords” checkbox on the front of the TerraCycle Pouch. 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 on your doorstep, and we’ll pick it up at the scheduled time.

How we recycle

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 through shredding. Metals are removed through magnetized and electrostatic sortation. Sorted metals are then smelted and formed for use in secondary metals manufacturing. Plastics are sorted by density profile and composition through multi-stage air, optical, and water-based mechanical sortation systems. 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.
