TerraCycle organizes recycling solutions for previously non-recyclable or difficult-to-recycle waste in 23 countries worldwide. The collected waste, eg. cigarette butts, pens or tooth brushes which would otherwise be incinerated, is converted into new environmental friendly products.
To finance the costs of recycling, TerraCycle works with more than 30 of the world´s biggest brands. Through their collection programs, consumers can collect and recycle their waste free of cost.
Using a pre-paid shipping label, participants send their waste to TerraCycle and in some collection programs even earn money that can be donated to a charity of their choice. In 2009, TerraCycle began operations in UK and has since expanded rapidly within Europe, now running collection programs in 14 European countries. The most current addition was Austria in 2013.
