ATLANTA, Aug. 02, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Global customs and logistics solutions by UPS (NYSE:UPS) are powering TerraCycle's mission to transform hard-to-recycle items like toothpaste tubes and snack bags into new products, diverting 40 million pounds of waste from landfills since 2012.
UPS's unique customs expertise and technology solutions helped TerraCycle grow its global recycling programs and customer base, which means less waste. Over the last five years, for instance, TerraCycle has turned 3.5 billion pieces of waste into useful products like trash cans and park benches.
The collaboration reflects UPS's commitment to solving environmental challenges and helping customers achieve a more sustainable global supply chain focused on waste reduction, reuse and recycling.
"TerraCycle has transformed recycling, just as UPS transformed logistics," said Patrick Browne, Director of Global Sustainability at UPS. "UPS is helping TerraCycle transport what was once considered trash or unrecyclable materials. As a result, businesses, communities and consumers can recycle more items and less waste is being thrown into landfills."
