TerraCycle’s Tom Szaky at the launch of Vancouver’s Cigarette Brigade pilot program.

After his freshman year at Princeton University, TerraCycle Founder and CEO Tom Szaky left his studies to start a company built on the ambitious goal of “eliminating the idea of waste” by making that which is non-recyclable, recyclable.
