Cart Buy Back

Recycled material for the manufacturing of new carts, including the industry’s only 100% recycled cart body – the Toter EVR-Green cart.

Why buy back carts?

In 2021, Toter launched Project25, our commitment to reduce virgin resin usage across our operation by 25%. Key to achieving this target is the development of more sustainable products that the use recycled material. To help close the loop in our manufacturing process, Toter has created a Cart Buy-Back Program.

With this program, Toter will provide a credit for recycling used carts. That recycled material will then be used in the manufacture of new carts, including the industry’s only 100% recycled cart body – the Toter EVR-Green cart.
