  1. Download a free UPS label from your account
  2. Print your label out
  3. Attach your label to your parcel. Please make sure you use a sturdy cardboard box which is no larger than 60x60x50cm in size. 
  4. ​Simply book a free pick-up via UPS by calling 03457 877 877 or book online via this link. Alternatively, you can also drop off your parcel at your closest UPS drop-off point, which you can find here.

What happens to this waste

Once collected, the personal care product packaging is separated by polymer type and cleaned (if necessary). The material is then extruded into plastic pellets to make new recycled products.

This programme offers 100 TerraCycle® points for each kilogram of personal care product packaging​ sent. However, the points will only be awarded if the parcel reaches the minimum weight of 4.5 kilograms.

For example:

1 kilogram = 0 TerraCycle® points
4.5 kilograms = 450 TerraCycle® points
5 kilograms = 500 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.
