This programme offers 1 TerraCycle point for each item of Tayto® crisp and snack packaging sent. However, the points will only be awarded if the parcel reaches the minimum weight of 1 kilogram.
500 grams = 0 TerraCycle points
1 kilogram = 200 TerraCycle points
2 kilograms = 400 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
