Once you are a member of the programme (by setting up a public drop-off location) and when you are ready to send a shipment, please follow these steps:
Once collected, the plastic packaging 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.
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 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 packaging = 0 TerraCycle® points
1 kilogram of packaging = 100 TerraCycle® points
2 kilograms of packaging = 200 TerraCycle® points
Please be aware, the weight of the cardboard box is not taken into account. TerraCycle® recommends public drop-off location administrators and private collectors to send more than the minimum weight to ensure points are awarded.
