How it works

Please choose the size box you'd like to purchase. When you receive your box fill it with the appropriate waste streams. Once full, bring your box to any UPS location or schedule a collection to send your items back to TerraCycle using the pre-paid UPS shipping label which is already affixed to your box. When we receive your box, we'll safely recycle all of the collected materials.

What happens to the waste?

The collected waste will be shredded and separated. The plastic (such as the cigarette filters) will undergo pelletisation and extrusion to be moulded into various recycled plastic products. The paper will be recycled and the tobacco and other organics will be composted.

Accepted waste

Please send us your cigarette filters, all parts of extinguished cigarettes, cigar stubs, outer plastic packaging, inner foil packaging, rolling paper, and ash.

Please do NOT...

include cardboard packaging of cigarette box as that can be recycled in your local curbside recycling program. Please note that we will not accept organics, broken glass, bio-medical waste, soiled nappies, expired medication, pesticides, paint, pressurised canisters, and medical sharps in any of our boxes. Please send traditional recyclables through your local council system.

Best practices for recycling

In order to recycle this waste stream properly, please make sure all excess product has been removed (i.e. paint from paint tubes). Additionally, if you choose to rinse your product, please note that it must be completely dry prior to shipping.
