This all depends on how you'd like to get involved.
If you would like to drop off your waste at your nearest public drop-off location, you do not require a TerraCycle® account. Simply visit the program page where you can find our interactive map (these are program specific) and use it to find your nearest public drop-off location.
If you'd like to start collecting waste for your household (as a private collector) or if you'd like to set up your own public drop off location, you will be required to create a TerraCycle® account before joining a program. Please have a look at the helpful labels above the free recycling program names to easily identify, at a glance, how the program will work, for example, if there are spaces for you to join or if you will need to drop off your waste.
