Recycle cannabis packaging through this program.
Every year, billions of pieces of used packaging end up in dumpsters and landfills across Canada. The waste collected through this program is recycled into a variety of recycled products and is given a second life.
This is a confirmation-based recycling program. After you request to join, we will review your request and get back to you within 14 days. To speed this process, please self-identify your "organization type" in your TerraCycle profile as either Individual or Retail Partner. Click here to update your TerraCycle profile.

Generally, the criteria for approval into the program will be:
This program accepts any and all cannabis packaging purchased from a licensed retailer, including outer plastic packaging, inner plastic packaging, tins, joint tubes, plastic bottles, plastic caps, and flexible plastic bags.
Please note: This program does not accept cannabis vapes. Please use the Cannabis Vapes Recycling Program to recycle your Canopy Growth brand vaping products.
You do not need to clean the waste before sending it in to TerraCycle. However, please remove all of the remaining product before shipping. And please remember, UPS will not accept dripping packages, so make sure your waste is dry prior to shipping.
Your collected products and packaging are dropped into specially marked Tweed | TerraCycle bin. Once the bin is full, it is picked up and transported to get cleaned and sorted. It is then processed and turned into plastic pellets and precious metals. Once in pellet form, brand new products are able to be created.
