Recycle your Pringles® cans
TerraCycle® and Pringles® have partnered to create a free recycling programme for all Pringles® cans. The programme also offers participants the opportunity to fundraise for charitable causes.
We do not provide collection boxes for private collectors or public drop-off locations for this programme.
This recycling programme is open to all individuals, schools, organisations (charities, town halls, local authorities) and companies based in the UK. There are 3 ways to participate.
1. Search on the interactive map above to see if you have a public drop-off location close by. If there is one, then simply take your accepted waste to the public drop-off location and drop them off during the designated hours.
2. If there isn’t a public drop-off location in place already in your community then you could set up your own public drop-off location. To do so, please join the programme by clicking on "Join programme for free" and then fill in this form to complete the process.
3. If there isn’t one already in place where you live, or you aren’t able to set up your own, then you have the option to sign up as a private collector by clicking on "Join programme for free" on this page.
If you do not have a TerraCycle® account yet, there are two steps you will need to complete in order to register for The Pringles® Can Recycling Programme. You must create an account on our website by filling out the form you will find here and then click "Join programme for free" on The Pringles® Can Recycling Programme page.
If you have not received a confirmation email from the email address "[email protected]" and if it is not in your junk or spam folder, please contact [email protected] with the subject line: "no confirmation email".
Please do not register a second time by creating a second TerraCycle® account.
Please note we need 72 hours to verify the information you have given to join the programme. Following this, you will be accepted on the recycling programme or you will be placed on the waiting list. You will then receive an email from us when you've joined this programme.
Once collected, the aggregated Pringles® tubes and plastic lids are sorted, shredded and washed. The material is then densified into hard-granulated plastic granules. The granules are then extruded so they can be incorporated into the production of different plastic products such as fence posts and benches.
