How They Recycle ...

Everything collected through the Zero Waste Box system is sorted and processed into raw materials that can be reused instead of being sent to landfill. Read below to learn how different types of materials are recycled by Terracycle. 

  • PLASTICS: Plastics are separated by number, melted down, and turned into pellets that can be molded and extruded to produce new products.
  • METALS: Metals are separated by type and smelted into ingots for reuse.
  • GLASS: Glass is cleaned and sorted by color for processing. It is then crushed and melted to be used in new glass products.
