TRENTON, NJ - With the average American producing a staggering 4.9 pounds of garbage daily1, that means roughly 1.6 million pounds of waste are thrown away every single day in the United States. The good news is that TerraCycle, the global leader in innovative recycling solutions, is helping consumers make Leap Day, and every day, especially different with convenient recycling solutions designed to make Zero Waste an attainable goal, year-round. 

“The individual actions we make, no matter how small they may seem at the time, can add up to make a big impact,” said TerraCycle CEO and Founder Tom Szaky. “Many people, making sustainable decisions together, can absolutely move the needle.” 

So, this Leap Day, TerraCycle is asking everyone to consider their footprint and find ways to recycle. TerraCycle makes sustainability as easy and convenient as possible with both free and paid solutions to recycle nearly every conceivable type of garbage. 

TerraCycle’s Free Recycling Solutions: TerraCycle offers free recycling programs funded by brands, manufacturers, and retailers around the world to help consumers collect and recycle their hard-to-recycle products and packaging. Individuals and organizations can conveniently recycle by signing up on TerraCycle.com, downloading a free shipping label, or by visiting a nearby recycling drop-off location. Participants can even earn money for their favorite school, charity or nonprofit with every shipment sent to TerraCycle.

TerraCycle’s Zero Waste Box™: TerraCycle’s Zero Waste Box offers convenient,turn-key recycling solutions for all types of waste that are not typically recycled through municipal recycling services. Available for both large-scale organizations and individual use, the Zero Waste Box empowers everyone to dispose of some of the most common waste streams responsibly. Some of TerraCycle’s most popular boxes include: 

When full, the boxes are returned to TerraCycle using the affixed prepaid shipping label, and the collected items will be cleaned, processed into raw materials, and then remolded to make new products. Pricing is based on the amount of waste separation involved in the recycling process and the current shipping and recycling costs for each material type.
