Zero Waste Box Program
This Action aligns with the following Calls to Action from the Circular Economy Action Agenda for Plastics

6. Set-up functioning collection systems
Through the Zero Waste Box Program, TerraCycle aims to support consumers and companies to recycle hard-to-recycle products by providing an all-inclusive recycling solution. The system consists of boxes and other solutions to collect specific waste that are convenient and easy to use, making it the perfect option for households, schools, businesses, manufacturing facilities, and events looking to offset their impacts and lighten their footprint. The items are then collected by TerraCycle, sorted, cleaned, separated by material and processed.
TerraCycle aims to have more than 15 million people using and benefitting from TerraCycle's Zero Waste Box service worldwide by the end of 2021. In 2021, TerraCycle launched the Zero Waste Box service in two additional countries - New Zealand and The Netherlands - making it now available in 8 markets globally.
