Personal Protective Equipment like safety glasses, gloves, and respirators are not typically accepted through kerbside recycling services. By participating in the epicycle + TerraCycle initiative, you’re ensuring these items don’t end up in landfill. 

In collaboration with TerraCycle, we have custom designed Zero Waste Boxes, which are purpose-built to accommodate three distinct waste streams: safety glasses, safety gloves, and respirators. 

To get started, simply place a pallet order of Industree Group products and receive a Zero Waste Box for the related waste stream. Alternatively, you can purchase a Zero Waste Box individually to start recycling. The price of the Zero Waste Box includes the entire recycling process, from shipping to the sortation and processing of materials.

HOW DO I REGISTER FOR THE EPICYCLE RECYCLING PROGRAM? 

Please complete the enquiry form on epicycle.com.au or alternatively contact your Industree Group Sales Representative. Once your registration has been processed, Industree Group will drop-ship your Zero Waste Box/es directly to your specified location.

HOW MUCH PRODUCT CAN THE ZERO WASTE BOXES FIT?

• 260 pairs of safety glasses fit into each bin.
• 1100 respirators fit into each bin.

DO THE ITEMS NEED TO BE CLEANED BEFORE SENDING THEM TO TERRACYCLE?

No, you do not need to clean the protective gear before dropping it off for recycling. However, drying items is encouraged as Australia Post will not accept dripping packages.

WHEN SHOULD I SHIP MY RECYCLING TO TERRACYCLE?

We encourage you to ship once you have a full box to minimise the environmental footprint of this program. Australia Post will not accept packages weighing over 20kg. Simply seal the box and return it to TerraCycle using the Australia Post prepaid shipping label on the back of the box. 

ARE THERE ANY COSTS ASSOCIATED WITH PARTICIPATING IN THIS PROGRAM?

Place an order for a pallet of Industree Group products and receive a branded Zero Waste Box for the related waste stream. Alternatively, you can purchase a Zero Waste Box individually to start recycling. The price of the Zero Waste Box includes the entire recycling process, from shipping to the sortation and processing of materials.

HOW WILL THE SAFETY GLASSES, SAFETY GLOVES, AND RESPIRATORS BE RECYCLED?

The safety gloves, safety glasses, and respirators are collected and sent to TerraCycle for recycling. Once the items arrive, they are cleaned and the materials are separated based on their composition. The materials are then processed into usable raw formats and sold to manufacturers to make new products.

WHAT CHEMICALS ARE NOT ABLE TO BE RECYCLED? 

Any products contaminated by hazardous chemicals or biohazardous substances cannot be accepted in the Zero Waste Boxes. 

HOW DO I REORDER MORE ZERO WASTE BOXES?

Please make sure you order a new Zero Waste Box from your Industree Group Sales Representative just before you ship the full box back, that way, you will never be left without a recycling solution.

WHAT REPORTING WILL I RECEIVE FROM INDUSTREE GROUP?

You will receive a quarterly recycling report from Industree Group for the waste stream assigned to your recycling program. The report will include a breakdown of the waste stream collected, accumulated weight collected, collection volume by location (if multiple locations) and the total weight collected.
