Join this program to be listed as a Community Collection Hub and open to the public in your area.
TerraCycle and GLAD® have partnered to create a recycling program for any brand of used food care! Sign up as a Community Collection Hub to be featured on the TerraCycle map so individuals in your community can find your location to drop off their waste. Read more about becoming a Hub below.

The Community Collection Hub network is a network of locations around Australia where members of the community can take their 'non-recyclable' waste to be recycled with TerraCycle.
Becoming a Hub is the most sustainable way to collect TerraCycle waste. Bigger shipments mean less environmental impact, while earning more donations for the charity or school of your choice. Here's how it works:

Program accepted waste:
Please note: All contents must be removed (i.e. leftover foods) and place cardboard packaging in your kerbside recycling bin.
Once collected, the cling wrap and bags are cleaned and melted into hard plastic that can be remolded to make new recycled products.
For each kilogram of used food care packaging that you send to TerraCycle, you will receive $1 in TerraCycle Points, which can be redeemed for a payment to the non-profit organisation or school of your choice.
There is no minimum shipment weight required to earn points, although we encourage collectors to collect a few months of waste with your friends and family before sending in a parcel!
