Launch of TerraCycle Program

Green Club just launched its TerraCycle waste distribution program in the past few weeks! Even while exposure to the program is only developing, considerable quantities of waste materials have been collected. Each month, we’ll update the blog with the quantities collected for the various TerraCycle tracks (each track represents a different brand of products’ packages that we collect and ship to TerraCycle).

(TerraCycle is a company that collects recyclable waste packages and materials and integrates them into their various products. Periodically, we ship packages containing these waste materials, like wrappers or bottles, to the TerraCycle headquarters in Trenton, New Jersey).
