Recycling in partnership with MOM Brands®

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.

Best practices for recycling

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.

What happens to the waste

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.
