The Pringles® cans are crushed and separated by their different components, as the components are recycled separately. The plastic lids are pelletized and the steel base is smelted. The cardboard, plastic and aluminium layer parts are separated through pulping so that the cardboard fibres can then be used for a new pulp. The remaining plastic and aluminium is pelletized. All materials can then be used in new products or applications.

This programme offers 100 TerraCycle® points for each kilogram of Pringles® cans sent. However, the points will only be awarded if the parcel reaches the minimum weight of 4 kilograms.
3 kilograms = 0 TerraCycle® points
4 kilograms = 400 TerraCycle® points
7.5 kilograms = 750 TerraCycle® points
Please note that TerraCycle® points are credited to the accounts of programme members 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.
Pringles® is excited to partner with TerraCycle® to launch a national recycling solution for Pringles® cans. To learn more about Pringles®, click here.
