TerraCycle is a recycling firm with an ambitious goal: to “eliminate the idea of waste by recycling the non-recyclable.” This includes working with companies to recycle manufacturing and packaging waste, partnering with sponsors to offer free recycling programs for certain products, and providing Zero Waste Boxes for purchase to recycle any of more than 500 specific waste streams, such as coffee capsules or safety goggles. So far, TerraCycle has recycled more than 3.5 billion units of waste, keeping these materials from being sent to incinerators or landfills.
