Litter Prevention Solutions
We offer several solutions for recycling some of our most commonly littered items: cigarette butts and used chewing gum.
Recycle cigarette butts
If you’d like to recycle cigarette waste in your home, business, office, or community, we have a variety of options for recycling this waste stream. Please view our options for purchase below. Each option can be adapted for existing waste procedures.
Receptacles are perfect for distributing standardizing cigarette recycling in small or large-scale outdoor environments. These metal receptacles can be equipped with steel bolt bands for flexible placement at your location.
The Zero Waste Box option is ideal for single-location recycling in which there is a common, centralized area for recycling this waste stream.
Through this free recycling program, TerraCycle offers participants the opportunity recycle cigarette waste completely free of cost. Participants create their own collection units (or purchase the receptacles listed above separate), collect the waste, and then ship it with prepaid labels downloaded from the program page.
Recycle chewing gum
And not only can you recycle littered cigarette butts, but we also offer an opportunity to recycle used chewing gum as well.
These units create a professional, sleek recycling container for unwanted gum litter. Like our cigarette receptacles, these can be equipped with steel bolt bands for flexible placement at your location.
Use a Used Chewing Gum Zero Waste Box to send in all of the used gum that you've collected at your location. This will ensure that the waste will be recycled instead of being thrown out.
