TerraCycle Brigades

Recycle Brevard is participating in several TerraCycle recycling programs with the goal of diverting more waste from our landfills.

You may bring the accepted waste listed below to our facility at 1535 Cogswell Street unit C-15 in Rockledge any time convenient to you. If not during our open hours, you may deposit your TerraCycle items in the bin located outside our door. We will pick it up from there.

You may also through drop off your TerraCycle items at The Green Marketplace. We have partnered with The Green Marketplace to be our drop-off location in Cocoa. Their open hours vary, so please check their page before heading their way.

Other drop-off locations may become available in the future as we secure locations and volunteers to help with this effort.

If you use any of the products listed below and would like to help upcycle them, we will gladly accept your items.  Please contact us at info@RecycleBrevard.org for details.
