Package Recycling Hubs

Walmart & TerraCycle are Piloting a Recycling Collection Program

— September 20, 2022 — Eco
TerraCycle is working with Walmart to pilot a new recycling collection program, which will see package recycling hubs set up so that consumers can easily recycle everything from beauty product containers to pet food packaging.

These one-stop recycling solutions help to address the need for the proper disposal of packaging that can't go to the curbside. This includes a range of products across categories like home and garden, skincare, office supplies and food. These Community Recycling Hubs operated by TerraCycle will see plastic packaging converted into raw materials, minus the high cost of collection. After packaging is dropped off, TerraCycle will transport the recycled waste to recovery facilities.

These new Community Recycling Hubs are currently set up at Walmart’s locations in Springdale and Fayetteville, Arkansas and Broken Arrow, Oklahoma.
