Recycle your Babybel® packaging through this programme
As part of this programme, you can recycle your Babybel® packaging in 2 different ways:
By dropping off your packaging at a public drop-off location
By setting up your own public drop-off location

Once you are a member of the programme (by setting up a public drop-off location) and when you are ready to send a parcel, please follow these steps:
Please check out our Accepted Waste Poster below for more details.
Once collected, the plastic waste is shredded, washed and then pelletized. These pellets can be used for a number of moulded rigid plastic products like benches, or used as film for products such as rubbish bags. Click here to learn more about the recycling process.
This programme offers 100 TerraCycle® points for each kilogram of Babybel® packaging sent. However, the points will only be awarded if the parcel reaches the minimum weight of 1 kilograms.
500 grams = 0 TerraCycle® points
1 kilograms = 100 TerraCycle® points
3 kilograms = 300 TerraCycle® points
Please note that TerraCycle® points are credited to the accounts of public drop-off location administrators only as a reward for their collection efforts. The number of points given is determined by the weight of the parcel. 1 TerraCycle® point is worth 1 penny.
Once credited, the points can be redeemed into financial donations to the charity or school chosen by the owner of the points. The points must be redeemed on the TerraCycle® website.
