Once collected, the Flash® Wipes, Cloths and Pads are cut finely. The material is then melted in order to become a usable raw material such as pellets or plastic lumber. These raw materials can be used for a number of moulded plastic products like benches. Click here to learn more about the recycling process.
This programme offers 100 TerraCycle® points for each kilogram of Flash® Wipes, Cloths and Pads sent. Parcels can be any size in order to receive points.
500 grams = 50 TerraCycle® points
1 kilogram = 100 TerraCycle® points
2 kilograms = 200 TerraCycle® points
Please note that TerraCycle® points are credited to the accounts of public drop-off location administrators and private collectors 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.
