Subaru Partners with TerraCycle

The United States generates about 230 million tons of trash annually—and less of a quarter of it gets recycled. The only way to intercept hard to recycle items is to collect these materials before they make their journey to the landfill. Competition Subaru of Smithtown will continue to work with TerraCycle to divert waste from landfills and incinerators by providing a sustainable recycling solution for customers.

How You Can Help

Competition Subaru of Smithtown will be collecting snack wrappers/bags, plastic straws, all types of disposable coffee cups and lids, as well as coffee/creamer capsules in a TerraCycle Zero Waste Box™. Feel free to collect such items at home, work, etc and drop them off at our dealership.

The Zero-Waste Box program diverts an average of two tons of waste from landfills across the U.S. per month. The collected waste will be transformed into items such as park benches, bike racks and playground equipment and donated to local community partners.
