TerraCycle Logo

TerraCycle’s purpose is to eliminate the idea of waste by creating national recycling systems for previously non-recyclable or hard-to-recycle waste. Anyone can sign up for these programs, called the Brigades, and start sending them waste materials.

TerraCycle then converts the collected waste into a wide variety of products and materials. With more than 20 million people collecting waste in 14 countries, TerraCycle has diverted billions of units of waste and used them to create over 1,500 different products available at major retailers ranging from Walmart to Whole Foods Market.

Their goal is to eliminate the idea of waste by creating collection and solution systems for anything that today must be sent to a landfill.


St. Luke Union Church (collection is in the Garage in back – collection containers are labeled)
