Please check out our Accepted Waste Poster below for more details.
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
TerraCycle® recommends public drop-off location administrators and private collectors to send more than the minimum weight to ensure points are awarded.
