TerraCycle points are an added incentive to our recycling programs. For this program, you can earn bonus TerraCycle points through our incentives and contests.
From February through April 2015, we're rewarding all shipment sizes sent in through this program. For official rules and more information, visit Rewards for the Solo Cup Brigade.
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. For more information on our points program, click here.
