If, for any reason, our carrier as identified on the prepaid return label will not ship the RecyclePak® container, we will work with you to identify alternative shipping. We will refund the actual shipping charges received by us from you if similarly priced alternative shipping cannot be located.
You promise that you will send us only the MATERIALS described above, in undamaged RECYCLEPAK® containers packaged in accordance with our instructions, in a quantity that does not exceed the stated capacity of the containers and in RECYCLEPAK® containers required for specific MATERIALS.

Additional Charges and Return of Materials
So we can serve you better, please be sure to use only RECYCLEPAK® containers for sending us only the MATERIALS described above and to use them in accordance with our instructions. If you exceed the stated capacity of a RECYCLEPAK® container, we reserve the right to charge you an additional fee to compensate us for the extra MATERIALS.. In the event you fail to abide by our instructions and you ship us MATERIALS in containers other than RECYCLEPAK®, ship us MATERIALS in a RECYCLEPAK® container that is inappropriate for those MATERIALS, ship us containers from restricted states or countries, or ship us wastes that are not MATERIALS as described above (The word “NON-CONFORMING CONTAINER” is used herein to describe these shipments), we will charge you and you agree to pay additional fees within 30 days of invoice. We will charge you an ADDITIONAL SHIPPING AND HANDLING FEE of $75.00 for each NON-CONFORMING CONTAINER shipped to reimburse us for the added costs in dealing with the NON-CONFORMING CONTAINER. If you send us a NON-CONFORMING CONTAINER, we will try to manage its contents, if possible, but we will charge you for any extra costs in addition to the ADDITIONAL SHIPPING AND HANDLING FEE listed above. Those costs shall be based on the retail rate for a RECYCLEPAK of similar size as published at www.prepaidrecycling.com at the time we receive the NON-CONFORMING CONTAINER. In the event you send us wastes that are not MATERIALS and we are unable, for any reason, to manage them you agree we can return the wastes that are not MATERIALS to you at your expense and you also agree to still pay us the ADDITIONAL SHIPPING AND HANDLING FEE above.
