This programme offers 200 TerraCycle® points for each kilogram of biscuit, cracker and cake wappers sent. However, the points will only be awarded if the parcel reaches the minimum weight of 5 kilograms.
3 kilograms = 0 TerraCycle® points
5 kilograms = 1000 TerraCycle® points
6 kilograms = 1200 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. The points must be redeemed on the TerraCycle® website.
TerraCycle has partnered with pladis, owners of household favourites including McVitie's, Jacob's, Carr's and go ahead! to create a free recycling programme for any brand of biscuit, cracker and cake wrappers, and a fundraising opportunity for participants.
