TerraCycle is an innovative waste management company that operates in 21 countries with a mission to Eliminate the Idea of Waste®. It is a global leader that partners with businesses, communities and individuals to move from a linear economy to a circular one.
TerraCycle creates new solutions for waste through three major business units each focusing on a different stage in moving from a linear to circular economy: recycling, recycled content and reuse. Through this approach TerraCycle has created first-of-its-kind recycling programs for locally hard-to-recycle materials, enabled leaked materials (from river to beach plastic) to be made back into consumer packages, launched a global platform for reuse through Loop, and to address the complex challenges of waste in emerging countries launched the non-profit TerraCycle Global Foundation.
TerraCycle and its CEO have won hundreds of awards for sustainability, innovation, and leadership including being named to Fortune Magazine’s Change the World list and TIME's #TIME100 Most Influential Companies 2021, which called its business model a potential “key to unlocking recycling’s full potential at scale.

About Our Team
TerraCycle was founded in 2001 by Tom Szaky. Born in Hungary, Tom and his family migrated to Toronto, Canada, when he was four. He always had a spark for the environment and recycling. Tom was shocked and astonished about people's waste: items thrown away are sometimes amazing and a second life is waiting for them!
TerraCycle was initially a small business, funded thanks to family and friends mainly. We can say our company had humble beginnings. With passion and perseverance, TerraCycle grew into the global leader in collecting and repurposing hard-to-recycle waste.
In 2013 TerraCycle expanded to Australia and New Zealand and is proud to be offer recycling solutions with free National Recycling Programs and Zero Waste Boxes in both countries. If you are interested in joining our Sydney team checkout our careers page here or follow us on LinkedIn.
