What you can recycle in this programme

Please check out our Accepted Waste Poster below for more details.

What happens to this waste

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.

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 500 grams.

For example:

300 grams = 0 TerraCycle points
500 grams = 50 TerraCycle points
3 kilograms = 300 TerraCycle points

Please note that TerraCycle points are credited to the accounts of programme members 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.
