Even after we do our very best (and our best is pretty great!) to find creative reuses for your toy waste, there are still pieces we just can't upcycle. Some pieces are sharp and broken, or no longer look like a recognizable object, or are just pieces of random plastic. Never fear! We still don't send them to the landfill. We Terracycle!
Terracycle is an industrial recycling company that sorts and recycles many forms of waste at the mechanical/chemical levels, for use in industry. Terracycle's Zero Waste Recycling Boxes are priced to reflect the energy, labour, and machinery required for the recycling of rigid plastics. When you donate here, your support goes towards the per box cost + HST for rigid plastic recycling with Terracycle. Learn more about recycling with Terracycle here.
