Recycle your dishwashing, cleaning and fragrance flexible packaging
TerraCycle® and RB® have partnered to create a free recycling programme for dishwashing, cleaning and fragrance flexible packaging. This recycling programme is open to all individuals, schools, organisations (charities, town halls, local authorities) and companies based in Ireland.
Read our 'how it works' section below to learn more about the three ways you can participate.
Participating is completely free and very easy, there are 3 ways to participate:
1. Search on the interactive map above to see if you have a public drop-off location close by. If there is one, then simply take your accepted waste to the public drop-off location and drop them off during the designated hours.
2. If there isn’t a public drop-off location in place already in your community then you could set up your own public drop-off location. To do so, please join the programme by clicking on "join programme for free" and then fill in this form to complete the process.
3. If there isn’t one already in place where you live, or you aren’t 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.
As soon as you are a member of the programme (options 2 and 3) and when you want to post a shipment, download a free shipping label from your account, attach it to your shipment and then drop it off at your local post office or post box.
In order to recycle this waste stream properly, please only send accepted packaging (see accepted waste above).
Please make sure all excess product has been removed (i.e. leftover product) from the packaging, and place them in a 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 aggregated dishwashing, cleaning and fragrance flexible packaging are sorted, shredded and washed. The material is then densified into hard-granulated plastic granules. The granules are then extruded so they can be incorporated into the production of different plastic products such as fence posts and benches.
