What you can recycle in this programme

Please check out our Accepted Waste Poster below for more details.

Best practices for collecting

In order to recycle this waste stream properly, please only send accepted packaging (see accepted waste above).

Please make sure all excess product has been removed (i.e. leftover product) from the packaging, and place them in a box.

Tape the box together securely ensuring there are no loose edges or corners. Print your label and attach it securely to the shipment.

What happens to this waste

Once collected, the aggregated dishwashing, cleaning and fragrance flexible packaging 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.

Rewards

This programme offers 100 TerraCycle® points for each kilogram of dishwashing, cleaning and fragrance flexible packaging sent.

For example:

500 grams = 50 TerraCycle® points
1 kilogram = 100 TerraCycle® points
2 kilograms = 200 TerraCycle® points

Please note that 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 weight of the parcel. 1 TerraCycle® point is worth 1 penny.

Once credited, the points can be redeemed as financial donations to the charity or school chosen by the owner of the points. The points must be redeemed on the TerraCycle® website.
