Tom Szaky shares how TerraCycle got started, how it continues to grow, and future plans for the company. He uses a three-question model to determine how to take materials that were typically considered unrecyclable, collect and reuse the materials in over 20 countries. The company deals with two to four million pounds of garbage weekly, and future plans include collecting containers, cleaning and refilling them. They partner with organizations to create programs that recycle these materials, giving companies an edge over the competition.
