If you are a programme member and ready to send a parcel, please, download a free shipping label via your account, attach it to your parcel and then drop it off at your local post office or post box.
Please check out our Accepted Waste Poster below for more details.
Make sure all excess product has been removed (i.e food residue) and place all biscuit, cracker and cake wappers wrappers in the 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, the biscuit, cracker and cake 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.
This programme offers 400 TerraCycle® points for each kilogram of biscuit, cracker and cake wappers sent. However, the points will only be awarded if the parcel reaches the minimum weight of 3 kilograms.
2 kilograms = 0 TerraCycle® points
3 kilograms = 1200 TerraCycle® points
4 kilograms = 1600 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 cent.
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.
Need help getting started? From downloadable posters to videos and guides, there are plenty of resources available to help you make an even bigger difference on the environment.
TerraCycle® has partnered with pladis, owners of household favourites including McVitie's, Carr's and go ahead! to create a free recycling programme for any brand of biscuit, cracker and cake wrappers, and a fundraising opportunity for participants.
