•             Swiffer® Sweeper™ Dry Sweeping Cloths
•             Swiffer® Sweeper™ Wet Heavy-Duty Mopping Cloths
•             Swiffer® Sweeper™ Dry Heavy-Duty Sweeping Cloths

Participation in the program is easy, simply sign up on the TerraCycle program page at https://www.terracycle.com/en-US/brigades/swiffer and mail in the accepted waste using a prepaid shipping label. Once collected, the waste is broken down, separated by material and the plastics are cleaned and melted into hard plastic that can be remolded to make new recycled products.
