Abstract

TerraCycle is an innovative recycling company that is known for their unique mission and scientific dedication. They are a global leader in recycling what they call “unrecyclable” goods. These goods consist of items and waste that recycling companies simply don't work with. These items tend to be either too expensive, or too difficult to find a way to repurpose; which is why there is a giant gap in the recycling industry. They offer programs funded by brands, manufacturers and retailers around the world to help them collect the waste. Their platform changes how we view waste from a linear system, to a circular one. Because of this, their company was able to shift the global perception on recycling in general.
