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.
There are 3 different ways to participate:
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.
If there are no public drop-off locations near you, you can set up your own. Simply follow the steps below:
If there are no public drop-off locations near you and you are not able to set one up yourself, you can become a private collector. Simply follow the steps below:
Once you are a member of the programme (by setting up a public drop-off location or becoming a private collector) and when you are ready to send a parcel, please follow these steps:
Please check out our Accepted Waste Poster below for more details.
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.
