How it works

There are 3 different ways to participate:

1) Drop off your dishwashing, cleaning and fragrance flexible packaging at your nearest public drop-off location

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.

2) Set up your own public drop-off location

If there are no public drop-off locations near you, you can set up your own. Simply follow the steps below:

  1. Create a TerraCycle® account
  2. Find a public place to host your collection (with the prior consent of the person in charge of the place)
  3. Join the programme by clicking on "join programme for free" at the top of this page
  4. Fill out this form to finalise your request

3) Become a private collector

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:

  1. Create a TerraCycle® account
  2. Join the programme by clicking on "join programme for free" at the top of this page

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:

  1. Download a free UPS label from your account
  2. Print your label out
  3. Attach your label to your parcel. Please make sure you use a sturdy cardboard box which is no larger than 60x60x50cm in size. 
  4. Book a free pick-up via UPS by calling +353 1 52 45446 or book online via this link. Alternatively, you can also drop off your parcel at your closest UPS drop-off point, which you can find here.

What you can recycle in this programme

Please check out our Accepted Waste Poster below for more details.

Best practices for collecting

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.

What happens to this waste

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.
