Recycling boxes: we speak to many customers who are very focused on benefiting the environment and increasing their work place recycling performance. The tougher things to recycling to date have been things like Nespresso pods, plastic gloves etc.



Basically the things that you would like to recycle but have been putting in general waste due to the lack of an alternative solution.


In today’s blog – we want to cover something a bit more complex than recycling cardboard boxes – which we have covered in lot’s and lots of blog.


Today – we talk about Terracycle recycling boxes – which are used for all the odds and ends – basically the stuff you have left over – once you have optimised the simple recycling stuff – like cardboard recycling boxes, commingled bins for bottles and cans and organic waste.


Think of Terracycle recycling boxes – as the hard yards – i.e. the next steps that can take your recycling performance to the highest levels – and in some cases actually hit zero waste to landfill.


As you will know – Waster offere low cost and flexible waste and recycling services to small and medium customers throughout Australia – check out our services below:


Recycling boxes – the next step in boosting your recycling performance


Waster has teamed up with TerraCycle to provide recycling solutions for hard to recycling waste utilising their Zero Waste Boxes.


Terracycle is a really interesting US company – that really leads the way in innovative recycling boxes – covering everything you can think of and lots you cannot!



From the TerraCycle website:


When an individual, company, or organisation chooses to go “zero waste,” that means they are living and working without generating any waste. All recyclable materials are recycled, all organic materials are composted, and items that cannot be recycled or composted are avoided and substituted with waste-free alternatives.”
