Announcing public drop-off locations!
Now you can recycle your food storage products right in your community. To see if you have a public drop-off location in your area, check out the map for the Glad Food Storage Brigade.
TerraCycle® and Glad® have partnered to create the Glad® Food Storage Brigade, a free recycling program for food storage products and a fundraising opportunity for participants.
Participating is completely free and very easy. There are no signup or participation fees, and the shipping is covered by our brand partner. There are two ways to collect and recycle food storage products.
