Join this program to collect at home and recycle as a private location or an individual.
TerraCycle and GLAD® have partnered to create a recycling program for any brand of used food care! Sign up as a private collector to ship your waste directly to TerraCycle for free.
Alternatively, if you would like to be listed as a Community Collection Hub and collect for the public, you can head to this page to join.
COLLECT AS A PRIVATE LOCATION
If you are unable to become a Community Collection Hub and be listed on our map as a public location, you can still send us your used food care products as a private location! You can collect on your own or with your friends & family, school or workplace. This option enables you to collect with a group of people without being listed on our Community Collection Hub map.
To sign up as a private collector please follow these steps:
Join the program by clicking the button at the top of this page.
When you've collected a couple of months' worth of packaging and are ready to ship your waste to us, head to your profile to download a free shipping label for this program.
Affix your shipping label to your package and bring it to your closest Australia Post.
Program accepted waste:
Please note: All contents must be removed (i.e. leftover foods) and place cardboard packaging in your kerbside recycling bin. Cardboard packaging can be placed 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!
