TerraCycle Internships

Interns at TerraCycle learn the ins-and-outs of eco-capitalism, recycling and social entrepreneurship, and serve as eco-ambassadors in both a local and global context.

TerraCycle Europe offers 3-6 month volunteer internships on a rolling basis based in our upcycled office in North-West London. The internship is open to undergraduates, graduates or recent graduates with a strong interest in green business, eco-capitalism, upcycling, recycling or social entrepreneurship.

TerraCycle offers a unique opportunity for incredible growth and innovative work. We are looking for people who are dependable, enthusiastic and professional to join us.

Please submit CVs with a cover letter (max 500 words) to (with "Intern Application" in the title) outlining what you can contribute to an internship position with us.



Operating in 21 countries, TerraCycle is the world leader in the recycling of generally non-recyclable waste such as pens, coffee capsules, wrappers, pouches and cigarette butts. We create and administer collection and solution systems for waste that would otherwise be sent to landfill or incineration. 

TerraCycle was founded in 2001 by Tom Szaky (then a 20-year-old Princeton University freshman) whose vision has become one of the fastest-growing green companies in the world.
