TerraCycle launches Zero Waste Bag for people to recycle materials not collected by councils


A Zero Waste Bag has been launched by TerraCycle allowing people to send them materials that their council do not collect.

The 14 waste streams they will take include crisp and snack packets, cosmetic products and packaging and medicine blister packs.


Customers must pay £25 for a small bag and £39 for a large bag with discounts available for bulk purchases.

This price includes delivery to the household, shipping the full bag of waste back to TerraCycle via InPost parcel lockers, and the cost of processing the waste and recycling it.

These bags can be dropped off at 5,000 InPost lockers nationwide.

TerraCycle general manager Julien Tremblin said: “Many members of the public have expressed their wish to be able to recycle more and have been asking for a solution such as Zero Waste Bag to recycle many items not accepted via council collections.

“The bags have been designed to represent the perfect solution in terms of ease and practicality for the public, and we’re excited to announce their launch.”
