Recycle your yogurt pouches and caps through this programme
As part of this programme, you can recycle all brands of yogurt pouches and caps in 2 different ways:
By dropping them off at a public drop-off location
By setting up your own public drop-off location
For all information on how to join this programme, please take a look at the "How It Works" section further down the page.
There are 2 different ways to participate in this programme:
Find your nearest public drop-off location on the interactive map above and drop off any brand of yogurt pouches and caps.
If there are no public drop-off locations within a 5 mile radius, you can set up your own. Simply follow the steps below:

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 yogurt pouches and caps sent. However, the points will only be awarded if the parcel reaches the minimum weight of 2 kilograms.
1 kilogram = 0 TerraCycle® points
2 kilograms = 200 TerraCycle® points
3.5 kilograms = 350 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.
