How to Recycle Non-Recyclable Items

By Tonka Dobreva 04.24.2018 interact

You can easily recycle paper and plastic bags, cans and glass containers, but what about hard-to-recycle items like pens, plastic gloves or coffee capsules? One company is on a mission to repurpose tricky-to-tackle consumer waste.

Founded in 2001, TerraCycle organizes free national recycling programs that collect your trash, turn it into raw materials that are then sold to factories to produce new items. The company, which currently operates in 20 countries, is not only helping keep the planet clean, but also donating millions of dollars to schools and charities.
