Why we are in business

Our Purpose

TerraCycle is an innovative recycling company that has become a global leader in recycling hard-to-recycle waste. What is hard-to-recycle waste? It can be anything from toothpaste tubes, coffee capsules and cigarette butts. We work towards Eliminating the Idea of Waste® by making the non-recyclable, recyclable. The waste is collected through free, national, brand-funded recycling programs, as well as various consumer and government-funded models. The collected waste is reused, upcycled or recycled into a variety of affordable, sustainable consumer products and industrial applications. Each year, across 21 countries, we collect and repurpose billions of pieces of waste, donating millions of dollars to schools and charities in the process.

By recycling some of the trillions of pieces of packaging that go to landfill every year, we hope to replace the need to create virgin materials and show the world it is more sustainable and more profitable to use waste as a raw material.

How we operate

Our Practices

We strive to operate our business in a way that maximizes benefit to all life impacted, and to share our practices to inspire other companies to do the same.


What we look for when hiring

TerraCycle is like no other waste management company in the world. Our offices around the world are made entirely from upcycled and reused materials, our walls are covered in ever-changing graffiti from local artists, and we thrive on a culture of transparency and high-energy innovation. To see a day in the life of a TerraCycle employee, tune in to our critically acclaimed TV show, “Human Resources,” on Pivot, or look through our available careers and internships to experience it for yourself.
