TerraCycle reuses, upcycles and recycles waste instead of incinerating or landfilling it. This moves waste from a linear system to a circular one, allowing it to keep cycling in our economy.

TerraCycle was founded in 2001 by Tom Szaky, then a student at Princeton University, on a mission towards Eliminating the Idea of Waste®. From these humble beginnings TerraCycle has grown into the global leader in collecting and repurposing hard-to-recycle waste: operating in over 20 countries, engaging over 60 million people, and recycling billions of pieces of waste through various innovative platforms.
TerraCycle has won over 200 awards for social entrepreneurship and sustainable business.
TerraCycle is like no other waste management company in the world. Our offices around the world are made entirely from upcycled waste, our walls are covered in everchanging graffiti from local artists, and we thrive on a culture of transparency and high energy innovation.
