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:
Once collected, the food pouches are shredded and washed (if necessary). The material is then melted in order to become a usable raw material such as pellets. These raw materials can be used for a number of moulded plastic products like benches. Click here to learn more about the recycling process.
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:
100 grams of food pouches = 0 TerraCycle® points
200 grams of food pouches = 40 TerraCycle® points
1 kilogram of food pouches = 200 TerraCycle® points
Please be aware, the weight of the cardboard box is not taken into account. TerraCycle® recommends public drop-off location administrators and private collectors to send more than the minimum weight to ensure points are awarded.
