TerraCycle

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 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.

The DRS Community Center in Satellite Beach has partnered with us to be a drop-off location for PERSONAL CARE items. They have a bucket with our sign (see picture on the right) indicating what items are accepted. If you live in that area, you may drop off your empty items in the lobby at DRS and we will be collecting from them.

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

TerraCycle uses a point system and some of their programs may reward shipments with points depending on the size of the shipment. Each point is worth $0.01 and each program has its own rules. Some may use shipments to donate $ to other charities, as it is the case of the contact lenses program, and others may not result in any points at all - they simply offer the opportunity to recycle a specific item -, as it is the case of the Hasbro Toys, instrument string, SOLO cup programs among others.

To help divert as much as possible from the landfills, Recycle Brevard participates in as many programs as we can regardless of whether points may be awarded or not.

If you have any questions, please contact us at info@RecycleBrevard.org.

E-Waste



TerraCycle closed their e-waste recycling program but you can drop off electronics -- all but CRT monitors, functioning or not -- at our facility, FREE of charge.

Computers Advancing Education
We have partnered with Computers Advancing Education an organization that repairs electronic equipment to donate them to students, schools, non-profit organizations, and individuals in an effort to support educational programs. What cannot be repaired will be recycled. Only about 0.5% of material is sent to landfills after all parts are reused and/or recycled.




http://www.blackholemakers.com/recycling/
We have also partnered with Black Hole Makers, a company located at 2752 Aurora Road - Melbourne, FL 32935 that offers PC repair and networking services. They accept the following items for recycling:

PCs (desktop & laptop)
Tablets
Gaming Systems
Phones
Batteries
Hardware (mouse, keyboard)
Stereos, CD players


If you have any of those items, you may drop them off at our facility in Rockledge or directly at Black Hole Makers during their business hours - whichever is closer and more convenient to you.
