Every year, billions of cigarette butts end up in dumpsters and landfills, or get tossed as litter on shorelines, parks, and sidewalks across the US. The waste collected through this program is recycled into a variety of industrial products, such as plastic pallets, and any remaining tobacco is recycled as compost. MAIL BACK PROGRAM ONLY.
NotesMail-back: Send in extinguished cigarettes, cigarette filters, loose tobacco pouches, outer cigarette pack plastic packaging, inner cigarette pack foil packaging, rolling paper and ash to be recycled through TerraCycle's Cigarette Waste Brigade. The organic waste (tobacco, paper, ash) will be sent to non-food composting, and the inorganic waste (packaging, filter) will be recycled into a variety of industrial products, such as plastic pallets. TerraCycle collects difficult-to-recycle packaging and products and repurposes the material; visit website for instructions.
