Here’s how the Zero Waste Bags by HBS program works:
Customers subscribe to the Zero Waste Bags by HBS program by visiting https://zerowastebagbyhbs.com and choosing a plan that fits their needs.
- Receive supplies
HBS delivers Zero Waste Bags so customers can collect the materials at home in a simple and convenient way.
- Fill Zero Waste Bags and Schedule Pickup
Once the Zero Waste Bags are full, customers request a pickup by scanning the Zero Waste Bag’s QR code or logging into their account at https://zerowastebagbyhbs.com.
- Place at the Doorstep to Recycle
Customers place their full Zero Waste Bag on their doorstep. HBS will pick them up and TerraCycle will recycle the materials inside.
Materials collected through the program will be received by TerraCycle’s material recovery facilities, where it will be sorted manually and then automatically into individual components. Each material is then recycled into a raw format that can be used to make new products. A portion of the waste collected through the Zero Waste Bags by HBS program will be recycled into benches and other items that will be donated to local public parks.
“Through the Zero Waste Bags by HBS program, we are enabling consumers to divert waste from the landfill, engage their communities and be rewarded for their effort,” explained Tom Szaky, TerraCycle Founder and CEO. “Zero Waste Bags by HBS is intended to make recycling from home accessible, affordable, and convenient – even for waste streams that have traditionally not been recyclable curbside.” The Zero Waste Bags by HBS program is open to any interested household in select towns in the Denver Metro area.
