Organization Overview
TerraCycle is a 'green' business that collects non-recyclable post-consumer waste and transforms it into new eco-friendly products and materials. Terracycle's goal is to eliminate waste by providing innovative solutions for hard-to-recycle products and packaging waste. TerraCycle's model engages consumers and communities in the collection of a range of waste through programs and then converts this waste into new products. TerraCycle also gives back to the community by making donations per unit of waste collected by non-profits and schools. TerraCycle's Australia office offers a comprehensive internship program with meaningful and substantial work, supervision and performance feedback, and opportunities for professional development.
