Recycle your bakery plastic packaging
The Warburtons Bakery Recycling Programme is one of two recycling programmes that allows you to recycle your bakery plastic packaging, for free. This page is for anyone who wants to create a way for their whole community to recycle their bakery plastic packaging by setting up a public drop-off location.
Find existing public drop-off locations close to you using the interactive map displayed below. If there are no locations within a 5 mile radius and you’d like to set up your own, scroll down the page for more information.
If there are no public drop-off locations within a five mile radius, you can set up your own. Simply follow the steps below:

Once collected, the bakery plastic packaging is shredded, washed and then pelletized. These pellets can be used for a number of molded 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 bakery plastic packaging sent. However, the points will only be awarded if the parcel reaches the minimum weight of 2 kilograms.
500 grams = 0 TerraCycle® points
2 kilograms = 200 TerraCycle® points
10 kilograms = 1000 TerraCycle® points
