ABOUT TERRACYCLE
TerraCycle is an innovative company specialising in recycling and upcycling hard-to-recycle waste. We currently work with over 60 brands in 21 countries to provide free recycling programs for consumer products that aren't accepted by traditional recycling solutions. 

Since its inception in 2001, TerraCycle has grown to become a network of 40 million people collecting hard-to-recycle waste at home, work, school or in the community. To date, we've diverted 4.1 billion pieces of waste from landfill and incineration worldwide. 

Through our sustainability-focussed business model, collectors can also earn donations toward their nominated school or non-profit organisation – it's a win-win! So far, TerraCycle has raised over US$21 million for schools and non-profits.
