What is TerraCycle?

TerraCycle is Eliminating the Idea of Waste® by recycling the "non-recyclable." Whether it's coffee capsules from your home, pens from a school, or plastic gloves from a manufacturing facility, TerraCycle can collect and recycle almost any form of waste. 

They partner with individual collectors such as us, as well as major consumer product companies, retailers, manufacturers, municipalities, and small businesses across 20 different countries. Together we are able to divert millions of pounds of waste from landfills and incinerators each month.

How do we get involved?

TerraCycle offers free recycling programmes funded by brands, manufacturers, and retailers around the world to help us collect and recycle our hard-to-recycle waste.  Points are earned for recycled items that can be transferred into cash for a local charity.

We have selected the Daniel Spargo-Mabbs Foundation. For more information on the charity, visit https://www.dsmfoundation.org.uk/.

Below are the programmes for which we collect in Coulsdon.  You can however drop off any Terracycle items as we have teamed up with a collector in Tadworth https://www.facebook.com/TadworthTerracycle/ who recycles most other programmes.
