Bring your recycling to a participating drop-off point near you. It's free, and you won't need a TerraCycle account or shipping label.
Please note that the content on this page is user generated. If you find a location that is no longer active, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Simply request to join this programme, and once you are confirmed, your location will show up on the drop-off map. Set up boxes that community members can fill with their rubbish to be recycled, and send full boxes to TerraCycle at no cost to you.
Starting and managing a TerraCycle public drop-off point is easy and free! See answers to frequently-asked questions here. Can’t find the answer to your question on this page? Learn more about becoming a drop-off point.
No, the pladis Biscuits and Snacks Free Recycling Programme accepts biscuit, cracker and cake wrappers from all brands.
We accept any brand of biscuit, cracker and cake wrappers such as digestives, rich tea etc. This includes the likes of Penguin's etc but not chocolate bars like Mars, Snickers etc, or the inside plastic tray as they are made from a different material.

Please note: Only one drop-off location per account per programme is authorised. A minimum distance of 2 miles is required between each drop-off point, unless you are in a heavily populated area. In addition, your public drop-off point must be open for at least 3 hours per week.
It’s quite simple to set up and manage a drop-off point, and you can recruit a group of friends to help!
Promote: Spread awareness about your location (as you see fit) to encourage participation.
Allocate: As you accumulate TerraCycle recycling rewards, choose which charities will receive donations from your points.
There are no direct costs to you for running a public drop-off point. Many collectors spend nothing other than their time. You may choose to purchase specific boxes or bins for your drop-off location, but you can also just use extra boxes you have at home.
Public spaces that have good traffic flow and are easily accessible are excellent drop-off points. Stores, community centers, places of worship, and libraries are great options.
You choose which TerraCycle free recycling programmes your drop-off point will participate in. Collectors can drop off only the waste accepted in those TerraCycle programmes.
No - unfortunately we do not provide collection boxes for this programme.
Earn TerraCycle points by recycling with us! You can redeem your points in the form of a donation to a school or charity of your choice. Thanks to the recycling efforts of our collectors, we've raised over £33 million pounds globally for schools and charities through our recycling programmes.
