World Wisdom: TerraCycle Zero Waste Box

As another school year comes to an end, the time has come for teachers and parents everywhere to clean out their backpacks and classrooms and dispose of their well-loved school supplies. This year, instead of relegating all the spent writing instruments, used stationery, old toys, piles of empty cleaning products, and the numerous other items that have accumulated over the year to already overcrowded landfills - recycle them through TerraCycle.   International recycling leader TerraCycle is on a mission to help consumers recycle more and make the most out of their trash with a convenient recycling solution designed to solve virtually anything standard curbside recycling programs cannot accept – The Zero Waste Box (ZWB).   According to the EPA, Americans throw away over 1.6 million disposable pens a year. This is only a small fraction of all of the school supply waste that is landfilled annually. TerraCycle’s Zero Waste Box solution provides a turn-key recycling option for all types of classroom waste, which are not typically recyclable through conventional recycling facilities. Available for both school-wide and individual use, the Zero Waste Box solution empowers students, teachers, and parents to responsibly dispose of their used school supplies while making an investment in preserving the environment for future generations.   “Don’t let the name Zero Waste Box fool you, these are far more than your standard cardboard box,” said Tom Szaky, founder and CEO of TerraCycle. “Zero Waste Boxes allow consumers to recycle traditionally hard-to-recycle items with the assurance that these materials will not be landfilled. This school year TerraCycle is encouraging students, teachers, and parents to clean up their backpacks, classrooms, and the planet with the help of a Zero Waste Box.”   To recycle school supply waste, TerraCycle offers the following Zero Waste Boxes:   For large-scale recycling solutions, TerraCycle offers the following Zero Waste Pallets:   When full, the boxes are returned to TerraCycle for processing, 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.   TerraCycle, the world’s leader in the collection and repurposing of complex waste streams, created the Zero Waste Box program to provide solutions for difficult-to-recycle waste that cannot be recycled through TerraCycle’s brand-sponsored, national recycling programs or via standard municipal recycling. To learn more about TerraCycle and its innovative recycling solutions, visit www.terracycle.com.   About TerraCycle TerraCycle is an innovative waste management company with a mission to eliminate the idea of waste.

Tarjetas que se convierten en muebles y zapatillas hechas de posos de café para afrontar el reciclaje de productos complejos

Algo similar hace Terracycle, que transforma el plástico en parques infantiles, aunque con una diferencia: los productos de los que proviene no son suyos. La empresa, que tiene más de 700 puntos de recogida en España, proporciona precisamente este servicio a otras compañías, como Gillette (maquinillas de afeitar), Philips (cepillos de dientes, boquillas o envases de hilo dental) o Bic (maquinillas, pero también rotuladores, bolígrafos o marcadores).

Local musicians invited to free instrument restring, recycle event

Local musicians are invited to attend a free recycle and restring event at Placerville News Company, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, June 4 . Sponsored by D’Addario and international recycling company TerraCycle, musicians can bring any old instrument strings for recycling and get their electric or acoustic guitars restrung with D’Addario NYXL or Nickel Bronze Acoustic strings. Old strings collected during the event will be recycled through Playback, D’Addario’s free, national recycling program. The collected metal strings will be converted into recycled alloys which are commonly utilized in the construction of guitar necks and the recycled nylon will be used in automotive applications, for instance. Located adjacent to the Bell Tower in downtown Placerville, Placerville News Company has served as Hangtown’s premier newsstand for more than 160 years. In addition to gifts, souvenirs and art supplies, Placerville News Company recently introduced a new music counter featuring products from D’Addario including, guitar strings, bass strings and accessories. Playback is the world’s first instrument string recycling program, launched through a partnership between D’Addario and innovative recycling company TerraCycle. The program is a part of D’Addario’s Players Circle loyalty program and allows registered users to recycle their used strings in exchange for extra Players Circle points. Musicians attending the recycle and restring events will receive a code at the event, redeemable for extra Players Circle points. Points can be used towards merchandise or donated to the D’Addario Foundation, the company’s nonprofit organization supporting music education in underserved communities. D’Addario has been consistently committed to the environment, working to reduce their company’s packaging waste and use the most environmentally responsible packaging available on the market. Their partnership with TerraCycle allows them to further reinforce their role as an environmental leader in the music industry. TerraCycle is a global leader in recycling typically non-recyclable waste, working with companies to implement recycling initiatives and finding solutions for materials otherwise destined for landfill.
