You can sign up to recycle cans and bottles with PepsiCo and TerraCycle® by joining the Dream Machine Recycle Rally Bottle and Can Brigade pilot program run by TerraCycle.
Participating in this Dream Machine Recycle Rally Bottle and Can Brigade pilot program is totally free! There are no signup or participation fees, and the shipping costs are paid for by the program.
As your collections increase, we will provide resources to make it easier to collect your bottles and cans, and you will begin to earn valuable incentives. Available incentives are listed at the bottom of the page.
How it Works
Once you have joined the Dream Machine Recycle Rally Bottle and Can Brigade pilot program, simply follow the steps below:
- Collect non-alcoholic plastic bottles and aluminum cans at your school. Crush the bottles and cans and place them in a reused box.
- Request a pre-paid shipping label from terracycle.com. To acquire a pre-paid label, simply access your TerraCycle account online and click “SHIP US YOUR WASTE.” Select “Bottle and Can Brigade” from the drop-down menu, and choose “Send me my labels.” Your pre-paid shipping label will be sent to your email within one business day.
- Ship the box to TerraCycle by affixing the pre-paid postage label and dropping it off at a UPS location.
