Amanda Balada is Business Development Manager at TerraCycle Europe, a global leader in the collection and repurposing of otherwise non-recyclable post-consumer and post-industrial waste.
Amanda leads the UK team at the European Business Development department which is responsible for identifying and forming new partnerships to develop recycling systems for their previously non-recyclable waste that would otherwise go to landfill or incineration. The team has grown significantly, doubling the number of free recycling programmes TerraCycle offers in Europe in the past year. This includes the development of new partnerships with leading brands such as Lavazza, Nestlé, Reckitt Benckiser or L’Oréal.
Amanda graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Environmental Sciences from the University of Barcelona in 2015. She then joined TerraCycle in 2016 as an intern, and started growing her career and promoting internally in Business Development.
