Recycle cereal bags through this program.
While Malt-O-Meal® brand cereals create 75% less packaging waste than comparably sized cereal boxes, they want to take their commitment to creating less packaging waste one step further by partnering with TerraCycle®. This partnership has created a free recycling program for cereal bags as well as a fundraising opportunity for participants.
Participating is completely free and very easy.
Program accepted waste: plastic cereal bags and box liners
In order to recycle this waste stream properly, please make sure all excess product has been removed (i.e. leftover cereal). 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 cereal bags and liners 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.
Malt-O-Meal® believes that the bag is better, which is why their bagged cereals have 75% less packaging than cereal in a box. They desire to help save the environment, one bag at a time.
