The Confectionery Free Recycling Programme

Recycle all brands of plastic confectionery packaging. The programme is closing. You have until Friday 1st December to download your pre-paid shipping labels and send us your last parcels. Parcels handed over to the courier after this date will not receive any TerraCycle points.

Discover Our Recycling Process

Once collected, the plastic confectionery packaging is shredded, washed and then pelletized. These pellets can be used for a number of moulded rigid plastic products like benches, or used as film for products such as rubbish bags.
