How it works

Participating is completely free and very easy!

Firstly, join the programme through your online account. You're then ready to start collecting your used Sealord pouches using any available box. 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. It's that easy!

What you can recycle in this programme

Programme accepted waste: 

1. Sealord Tuna Express pouches

2. Sealord Tuna Pockets


Best practices for recycling

In order to recycle this waste stream properly, please make sure all excess product has been removed (i.e. tuna). Additionally, if you choose to rinse your product, please note that it must be completely dry prior to shipping. You cannot ship dripping packages.

What happens to the waste

Once collected, the pouches are shredded, cleaned and melted into hard plastic that can be remolded to make new recycled products.


TerraCycle Points

TerraCycle points can be redeemed for a payment of $0.02 per unit received to the non-profit organisation or school of your choice. In order to receive points, please ensure your shipment weighs over 2kg.
