Recycling Boxes

Have a look at our shipping options to make sure you choose the solution that best suits you.

Recycling process

  • Collecting: By participating to a Go Zero recycling program, you directly contribute to collect recyclable materials. Please make sure the recycling container is visible and that the participants only deposit the allowed products. This will greatly increase the efficiency of the recycling process and the quality of the new raw material made from your recycled products.
  • Receiving: Once we receive your recycling box, we will scan the box and register it in our RealCycle traceability system.
  • Sorting: As soon as the box is ready to be sorted, our teams will sort the content of the box with the help of different techniques; manual, density, optical and IR scanning.
  • Separation: Since the recycled products are made of different types of materials, our production lines and machines will separate and then shred the different materials of the product. Different types of plastics, metals, papers and other materials will be separated to increase their recyclability. If required, the content will be washed in our eco-friendly washing and material cleaning plant. This is to maximize the quality of the raw material produced at the end of our process.
  • Reconversion: At this step of the process, we are converting the high quality new recycled raw material into a new form that will be used by manufacturers. To do so, Go Zero and its partners are extruding plastic into new plastic pellets, compounding diverse materials, shredding wood and paper into fine particles, melting glass into cullets, melting metals into ingots, composting bio materials, reusing materials for a alternative usage, and more.
  • Certification: Once your products are fully recycled in full circular economy, our RealCycle traceability system will automatically email you a recycling certificate which will certify the weight of recycled materials and the positive impact it generates.
  • Circularity: Go Zero is providing recycled raw material to certified manufacturers selected from a list of criteria such as; proximity, sustainable manufacturing process, benefits to communities, eco-designed products, recyclable products, useful products, etc.


  • Recycling has an enormous positive impact on our environment; one ton of recycled plastic saves 5,774 Kwh of energy, 16.3 barrels of oil, 98 million BTU's of energy, and 30 cubic yards of landfill space.
  • One ton of recycled glass saves 42 Kwh of energy, 0.12 barrels of oil (5 gallons), 714,000 BTU's of energy, 7.5 pounds of air pollutants from being released, and 2 cubic yards of landfill space.
  • By doing business with Go Zero and our partnerships with social and environmental organisations, you positively reinforce our communities.
