TerraCycle® points are credited to the accounts of public drop-off location administrators as a reward for their collection efforts. The number of points given is determined by the total weight of the shipment. 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.
Here is the reward this programme offers:
500 grams of hand wash pumps and refill pouches = 0 TerraCycle® points
1 kilogram of hand wash pumps and refill pouches = 100 TerraCycle® points
2 kilograms hand wash pumps and refill pouches = 200 TerraCycle® points
Please be aware, the weight of the cardboard box is not taken into account. TerraCycle® recommends public drop-off location administrators to send more than the minimum weight to ensure points are awarded.
