Biscuit Wrapper Roundup

Roundup your biscuit wrappers and win amazing prizes! 

McVitie's and TerraCycle were excited to launch the Biscuit Wrapper Roundup; a collection contest on the McVitie's Biscuit Wrapper Recycling Programme. 


Both private collectors and public locations could participate in the contest for a chance to win amazing prizes, which they donated to the charity of their choice. In total a record breaking 329,504 pieces of biscuit wrappers were collected for recycling during the contest period. McVitie's and TerraCycle would like to thank all the collectors who participated!  


To take part in the Biscuit Wrapper Roundup contest participants simply had to send in as many shipments of biscuit wrappers as possible between 1st November 2016 and 1st February 2017. The top 20 collectors shared a total of £500 in prizes. 

Shipments were credited with a sweepstake ticket, and two sweepstake winners were drawn at the end of the contest. Please note that collectors only received sweepstake tickets for the first three shipments they sent in during the contest period. 


The twenty winners shared a total of £500 in prizes. Two lucky sweepstake winners also received a goodie bag with McVitie’s biscuits.
