Once you are a member of the programme (by setting up a public drop-off location or becoming a private collector) and when you are ready to send a shipment, please follow these steps:
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.
