Every year, millions of non-recyclable cookie wrappers and packaging end up in our landfills, and TerraCycle® is proud to create a second life for this waste. As an eco-friendly innovator, TerraCycle is going to convert the used wrappers and plastic liners into unique products.
Once you have signed up for the Cookie Packaging Brigade, collect cookie packaging and ship it to TerraCycle using free, downloadable postage labels. When you have collected at least 50 wrappers, reuse a box or bag you have at home, affix the prepaid postage label and drop it off at the nearest UPS location.
For each approved cookie package received, your collection location will be awarded two TerraCycle points which can be redeemed for a variety of charitable gifts or for a payment of $0.02 to the non-profit organization or school of your choice. Please click here to learn more about the TerraCycle Points Program!
Participating in the Cookie Packaging Brigade is totally free! There are no sign up or participation fees, and the shipping is covered by the program. If you'd like more information or have any questions, please check out the Cookie Packaging Brigade® FAQ .
The following types of waste can be collected through the Cookie Packaging Brigade: Cookie Wrappers, Cookie Bags, Individual Cookie Bags, Inner Plastic Trays.
Donations based on a weight, using .11oz. as the average weight of an empty cookie wrapper.
