  • LOVED LOVED LOVED that this show profiled TerraCycle!!!!!!! I am an obsessed and avid recycler. I have and continue to purchase MANY boxes. I also now take some items (straws, Keurig pods, snack/candy wrapper) at local Subaru dealership.

    I wish more places had these boxes for dropping off.
