Terracycle Brigades

Recycle Brevard is participating in several Terracycle Brigades through drop-off locations. We have partnered with The Green Marketplace to be our drop-off location in Cocoa. Their open hours vary, so please check their website 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.
