How it works

When you are ready to send a parcel, please follow these steps:

  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.

For more information on how to prepare and send your parcel, check out our step-by-step video guide here. Please note, you can pack all brands of baby food pouches, kids yogurt pouches, pouch caps and Ella’s Kitchen® snack packets together in your parcel without having to sort or separate the waste.

What you can recycle in this programme

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

Best practices for collecting

Make sure all excess product has been removed (i.e. food residue) and place all baby food pouches, kids yogurt pouches, pouch caps and Ella’s Kitchen® snack packets in a cardboard box. Tape the box closed securely ensuring there are no loose edges or corners. Print your label and attach it securely to the shipment.

What happens to this waste

Once collected, your empty baby food pouches, kids yogurt pouches, pouch caps and Ella’s Kitchen® snack packets are separated by polymer type and cleaned (if necessary). The material is then extruded into plastic pellets to make new recycled products.

Rewards

This programme offers 100 TerraCycle® points per kilogram of baby food pouches, kids yogurt pouches, pouch caps and Ella’s Kitchen® snack packets sent. However, the points will only be awarded if the parcel reaches the minimum weight of 8 kilograms.

For example:
1 kilogram = 0 TerraCycle® points
8 kilograms = 800 TerraCycle® points
12 kilograms = 1,200 TerraCycle® points​

Please note that 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 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.
