Zero Waste Subscription Box Australia 📦: We speak to many customers who are very focused on benefiting the environment and increasing their workplace recycling performance on a daily basis. The tougher things to recycle, as far we have experienced, 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 lots and lots of blogs. Today, we talk about TerraCycle recycling boxes, which we can use for all the odds and ends. Basically, this includes the stuff you have left unused once you have optimised the simple recycling stuff such as 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 help hit zero waste to landfill.

As you will know, Waster offers low cost and flexible waste and recycling services to small and medium customers throughout Australia. Check out our services below:

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.

“TerraCycle’s Zero Waste Box™ platform allows you to recycle almost any type of waste, such as individual coffee capsules from your morning coffee or complex laboratory waste from your business. Simply choose the waste stream you’d like to recycle, purchase the right-sized box, collect your waste, and send it to TerraCycle to be repurposed (shipping is included).

“A high-end, permanent collection unit to house your Zero Waste Box is the perfect solution for businesses, homes, retail locations, and anywhere else a Zero Waste Box is placed. A permanent unit protects your box, can be styled to fit your environment or workplace and offers an organised place to maintain your collections. We’ll work with you to understand and accommodate your budget, styling, quantity, and timeline needs.”
