GLAD® Food Storage Free Recycling Programme

Recycle any brand of used food care

GLAD® sponsors this national recycling programme making it free for you to participate.

All brands of cling wrap and snap lock, sandwich or freezer bags including the GLAD TO BE GREEN range.

The programme does not accept:

  • Packaging still containing food
  • Food storage containers
  • Rigid plastic food storage items


Outer cardboard packaging can be recycled with your local council, so please don’t include this in your shipment to TerraCycle.

 

We encourage you to ship when your box is full of rubbish to minimise the footprint of this programme. New Zealand Post will not accept dripping packages, so please make sure your items are dry.

No, you do not need to clean the packaging before dropping it off for recycling, but please remove as much of the remaining product as possible before shipping. New Zealand Post will not accept dripping items, so please make sure your items are dry.
