Turning Trash into Cash: Recycle to Raise Money for Your School With TerraCycle

Terracycle Logo

Trenton, NJ, – Everyone creates trash – and now recycling trash can earn K–12 schools some cash. TerraCycle, an international leader in innovative sustainability solutions, launched an easy school fundraiser program that helps staff and students learn the importance of recycling while preventing hard-to-recycle trash from going to landfills and incinerators.

When schools sign up to recycle with TerraCycle, they can fundraise just by sending in the school community’s unrecyclables—trash that’s not typically accepted by curbside recycling programs. The more trash shipped in, the more money the school brings in.

Here’s how fundraising with TerraCycle works:

  1. Create a TerraCycle account for your school.
  2. Join as many participating free recycling programs as desired.
  3. Build a TerraCycle recycling hub with collection bins in your school using materials on hand.
  4. Share the news with the school community: let students, parents, and faculty know they can help fundraise just by recycling.
  5. When the collection bins are full, download a free shipping label for each program and send the trash to TerraCycle to be recycled for free!
  6. For each shipment, earn TerraCycle Recycling Rewards points that can be redeemed as a donation to fund field trips, new supplies and more.

The more trash collected and sent to TerraCycle for recycling, the more money students, parents and staff can earn for their school. More information on the recycling rewards incentives available to participating schools can be found at https://www.terracycle.com/en-CA/pages/schools.

“At TerraCycle, we are eager to build a greener future for schools through recycling,” said Tom Szaky, founder and CEO of TerraCycle. “With this new initiative, we’re making it simple for schools to bring recycling and sustainability into the classroom, while also fundraising for school trips and projects in a practical and sustainable way.”

The opportunity to fundraise for schools is open to any interested school community. For more information, visit https://www.terracycle.com/en-CA/pages/schools.
