How to recycle 'hard to recycle' products

As a supplier of various workwear and safety equipment, we take it upon ourselves to introduce you to responsible ways of disposing of your end-of-life items. Here at DCC, we do not offer a collection or recycling service, however, we are advocates of many different schemes. One of which is the TerraCycle Zero Waste Box Solution.

TerraCycle is working to eliminate the idea of waste by helping us all to recycle the “non-recyclable/hard to recycle” items. TerraCycle’s Zero Waste Box™ solution allows you to recycle various types of waste from crisp packets to PPE. The solution is a simple one.

You purchase a collection box for your chosen waste type. The boxes are available in 3 sizes so you can choose one to fit your space. Once it’s delivered to your door you start filling it with the specified waste. When the box is full, seal it up and use the pre-paid UPS delivery label to send it back to TerraCycle. All you need to do then is order your next box and keep on recycling.

The Zero Waste Box system is an all-in-one solution for home, workplace and event use. TerraCycle believes that everything can be recycled in one way or another, they do the hard work so you don’t have to. The Zero Waste Box system is easy to integrate into your workplace, so order your box today.

Items you can collect:

  • Disposable gloves
  • Safety equipment and protective gear
  • Disposable face masks
  • Hair and beard nets
  • Ear plugs
  • Disposable garments; overalls, aprons, etc
  • Protective eyewear
  • Office and kitchen waste
  • Plus much more!
