Zero Waste Box

We now have a Zero-Waste Box from Terracycle in our shop!

How does it work?

Zero-waste boxes are for items that are hard to recycle or cannot be turned into local recycling programs. Simply bring in your items and dispose of them in the Terracycle box. When the box is full, we will send it away to be sorted and recycled.

We have created a list of items we will accept. Please follow the guidelines below. These items are often disposed of but with the right processing can be recycled and turned into something new.

Please make sure all items and clean and dry and do not contain: organics (food), sharps (syringes), hazardous waste, broken glass, bio-medical waste, soiled diapers, expired medication, pesticides, paint, or pressurized canisters.
