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.

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 Pringles® cans = 0 TerraCycle® points
1 kilogram of Pringles® cans = 100 TerraCycle® points
2 kilograms of Pringles® cans = 200 TerraCycle® points
Please be aware, the weight of the cardboard box is not taken into account. TerraCycle® recommends public drop-off location administrators to send more than the minimum weight to ensure points are awarded.
Pringles® is excited to partner with TerraCycle® to launch a national recycling solution for Pringles® cans. To learn more about Pringles®, click here.
