TerraCycle Europe offers 3-6 month volunteer internships on a rolling basis based in our upcycled European headquarters in North-West London. From this office TerraCycle’s recycling programmes in the UK, France, Germany, Spain, Austria, Switzerland, Netherlands, Belgium, Norway, Sweden and Denmark are all centrally managed.
Internships are open to undergraduates, graduates or recent graduates with a strong interest in green business, eco-capitalism, upcycling, recycling or social entrepreneurship. We are always on the lookout for interns who can speak at least one (and more than one is an added bonus) of the following languages - English, French, German, Spanish, Dutch, Norwegian, Swedish or Danish.
TerraCycle offers a unique opportunity for incredible growth and innovative work. We are looking for people who are dependable, enthusiastic and professional to join us.

Operating in 21 countries globally, TerraCycle is the world leader in the recycling of generally non-recyclable waste such as pens, coffee capsules, food wrappers/pouches and even cigarette butts and beach plastics. We create and administer collection and solution systems for waste that would otherwise be sent to landfill or incineration.
TerraCycle was founded in 2001 by Tom Szaky (then a 20-year-old Princeton University freshman) whose vision has become one of the fastest-growing green companies in the world.
