You will need to provide:

  1. A contact person (over 18 years old) to oversee the Snack Pouch Recycling Program at your location
  2. A valid email address
  3. A valid mailing address

  4. If you choose to redeem your points towards a non-profit or charity of your choice, you will also need the mailing address and contact information for the organization.

    If you do not have a preferred charity or non-profit organization, you can choose to redeem your points towards one of TerraCycle's charitable gifts.

We welcome anyone from almost any organization to join in our recycling efforts! There are some practical considerations your organizations should keep in mind. For example, our program is not designed to accommodate recycling centers.

We accept GoGo squeeZ and all other brands of food snack pouches.
