Important!

There is a minimum shipment size of 5 kg (approx. 550 used Ella's Kitchen® Pouches). 

Please note every parcel of baby food pouches and snack wrappers we receive will have to weigh a minimum of 7 kg to receive TerraCycle® points from September 2nd 2019 onwards. This change will help us to recycle even more baby food pouches and snack wrappers!

Drop-off locations

This map is constantly being updated

View all participating public drop-off locations on the interactive map above.

A public drop-off location is a communal collection point where the public can take their TerraCycle waste for recycling. Each public drop-off location is listed on the interactive map above. When you drop off your waste at a public drop-off location, the TerraCycle points earned for the waste are transferred to the account of the public drop-off location administrator in question, who can then donate the points to the charity of their choice.

Before you go to a public drop-off location with your waste, we advise you check the details (full address, opening hours and location of collection box at the site) and when a telephone number is listed it’s worth calling just to ensure the collection point is still active.

This map is updated when new public drop-off locations are added or removed, so we recommend you consult it in advance of each time you plan to drop off your waste.

If you are interested in setting up a public drop-off location for your community, please fill out this form.
You don't have to become a public drop-off location to send us your waste. You can become a private collector simply by joining the EllaCycle recycling programme.​

How it works

There are 3 different ways to become an EllaCycler:

1) Drop off your baby food pouches at your nearest public drop-off location

Find your nearest public drop-off location on the interactive map above and drop off your baby food pouches and snack wrappers – all brands are accepted.

  2. Join the programme by clicking on "join programme for free" at the top of this page
  3. Fill out this form to finalise your request

To request your EllaCycle collection box, tick the box in the form. Once the public drop-off point has been set up, the location will appear on the map

3) Collect privately

If there is no public drop-off location already in place where you live, or that you are not able to set up your own, then you have the option to sign up as a private collector by clicking on “join programme for free" on this page.

Once you are a member of the programme (either by setting up a public drop-off location or collecting privately) and when you are ready to send a shipment, please follow these steps:

  1. Download a free UPS label from your account
  2. Print your label out
  3. Attach your label to your parcel

4.Simply book a free pick-up via UPS by calling 03457 877 877 or book online via this link. Alternatively, you can also drop off your parcel at your closest UPS drop-off point, which you can find here

To receive TerraCycle® points for your shipment (which you can then redeem for the charity) , please ensure it weighs more than 5kg.

What you can recycle in this programme

Best practices for recycling

Make sure all excess product has been removed (i.e food residue) and place all baby food pouches and snack wrappers in a box, including the lids. 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 the waste

Once collected, the baby food pouches and snack wrappers are cleaned and melted into hard plastic that can be remolded to make new recycled products. Click here to learn more about the recycling process.

Rewards

Earn points for the waste you recycle

TerraCycle points can be redeemed for a variety of charitable gifts, product bundles or for a payment of £0.01 per point to the non-profit organization or school of your choice. To learn more about our points programme, click here.
