Recycle your yoghurt pouches and caps with Fonterra
TerraCycle and Fonterra have partnered to create the Fonterra Pouch Recycling Programme, a free recycling programme for Anchor Uno pouches, Anchor Protein+ or any other yoghurt pouches.
Participating is completely free and very easy.
Firstly, join the programme through your online account. When you are ready to send in a shipment, download a shipping label from your TerraCycle account by clicking “Request a postage label” and follow the prompts. Print out your label and tape it securely onto your box. Ship the box to TerraCycle by dropping it off at your nearby post office.
Programme accepted waste: Anchor Uno and Anchor Protein+ pouches and caps and any other brand of yoghurt pouches and caps.
In order to recycle this waste stream properly, please make sure all excess product has been removed (i.e. yoghurt). Additionally, if you choose to rinse your product, please note that it must be completely dry prior to shipping. You cannot ship dripping packages.
Once collected, the yoghurt pouches are cleaned and melted into hard plastic that can be remolded to make new recycled products.
Each kilo of pouches that you send to TerraCycle through the Fonterra Pouch Recycling Programme can be redeemed for a payment of NZ$1.00 (per kilo) to the non-profit organisation or school of your choice. To fundraise for your school or not-for-profit of choice, please keep in mind that your shipment has to be over 1kg.
