Recycle all your Tayto® crisp and snack packaging through this programme
TerraCycle® and Tayto® have partnered to create a free recycling programme for all your Tayto® crisp and snack packaging. The programme also offers participants the opportunity to fundraise for your favourite charitable cause.
For this recycling programme we offer public drop-off locations exclusively for collectors based in Northern Ireland. Please note that everyone still has the opportunity to become a private collector on this programme.
We do not provide collection boxes for private collectors or public drop-off locations for this programme.
Participating is completely free and very easy.
When you want to post a shipment, download a free UPS label from your account, attach it to your shipment and then simply order a free pick-up via UPS by calling 03457 877 877 or book a collection online here. UPS will then collect from your location. You can also drop-off your parcel at your closest UPS drop-off point, which you can find here.
Please check out our Accepted Waste Poster below for more details.
So we can recycle this waste properly - and in common with other household recycling - we would ask you to properly empty your packaging before placing 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.
Once collected, your Tayto® crisp and snack packaging is cleaned and extruded into plastic pellets to make new recycled products. 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:
To earn TerraCycle® points, you need to send minimum 200 units (1 kg) which will be rewarded with 1 point per unit.
Please weigh your shipment before sending it, because the weight depends on the type of crisp and snack packets you are sending.
