TerraCycle is Talking Trash Ahead of the Big Game

TerraCycle’s Zero Waste Box Solutions Tackle Single-Use Waste from Game Day Celebrations

From kickoff to the final whistle, the Big Game always features plenty of trash talk between the loyal fans of the opposing teams. While the cheers and jeers echo through parking lots and living rooms, the excess of single-use packaging waste left behind in the aftermath of tailgates and viewing parties often goes unnoticed. SNAC International reports Americans consume 112 million pounds of snacks on game day, most of which come packaged in single-use plastic.

“Everyone knows that game day is as much about food and tailgating as it is about football,” said Tom Szaky, Founder and CEO of TerraCycle. “Unfortunately, the environmental toll of these celebrations adds up quickly. Our Zero Waste Boxes help consumers keep waste out of landfills and incinerators, ensuring a victory not only for the winning team on the field but for the planet as well.”

TerraCycle’s Zero Waste Boxes help party hosts score big with guests without getting fouled by a pile-up of waste. The Zero Waste Box program offers convenient, turn-key recycling solutions for all waste generated at game day parties that is not typically recycled through municipal recycling services.

After the football-watching festivities are over, this sustainable game plan will keep waste out of landfills:

When full, the boxes are returned to TerraCycle for recycling using the affixed prepaid shipping label. The collected waste will be cleaned, melted and remolded into pellets that can be used to make new products.

TerraCycle, the leader in collecting and recycling complex waste streams, created Zero Waste Boxes to provide solutions for difficult-to-recycle waste that cannot typically be recycled through standard municipal recycling.
