Recycle food storage products and packaging through this program.
TerraCycle® and Glad® have partnered to create a free recycling program for food storage products as well as a fundraising opportunity for participants.
We regret to inform you that the Glad® Food Storage Recycling Program will be closing on October 31, 2016. You will be unable to download or request shipping labels after this date. Additionally, any waste received and checked in after this date will not receive the TerraCycle point donation.
If you would like to continue recycling this waste stream after October 31, 2016, you may purchase the Plastic Packaging Zero Waste Box.
Participating is completely free and very easy.
Program accepted waste: Glad® ClingWrap, Glad® Press'n Seal® wrap, Glad® plastic food storage containers and lids, Glad® food storage bags, and all other brand plastic wrap, plastic food storage containers and lids, and plastic food storage bags.
In order to recycle this waste stream properly, please make sure all excess product has been removed (i.e. large crumbs). Additionally, if you choose to rinse your product, please note that it must be completely dry prior to shipping. You cannot ship dripping packages.
Once collected, the products and packaging are cleaned and melted into hard plastic that can be remolded to make new recycled products. Click here to learn more about the recycling process.
TerraCycle points can be redeemed for a variety of charitable gifts, product bundles, or a payment of $0.01 per point to the non-profit organization or school of your choice. To learn more about our points program, click here.
Glad® is taking a stronger stand against waste, producing bags with less plastic and food containers that can be washed and reused.
