HOW IT WORKS
Please choose the size box you'd like to purchase. When you receive your box fill it with the appropriate waste streams. Once full, bring your box to any UPS location to ship your items back using the pre-paid UPS shipping label which is already affixed to your box. When we receive your box, we'll safely recycle all of the collected materials.
The collected waste is mechanically and/or manually separated into chemical, metal and plastic. The chemicals are removed while salvageable metal and plastic are recycled.
Please do not include any rechargeable lithium ion batteries, or any battery used to power a device not classified as a portable electronic device. We will also not accept household hazardous waste such as lithium ion batteries, pressurized canisters, pesticides, oil based paint or medical sharps, organics, broken glass, bio-medical waste, soiled diapers or expired medication. In addition, we also will not accept any item that is classified as sharps, flammable, reactive, corrosive, ignitable, radioactive, toxic, infectious, or pathogenic.
