Thank you for participating in the The Collective Suckies Recycling Programme. Shipping labels are no longer available for this programme. Please ship your waste to us as soon as possible to ensure it arrives at TerraCycle before 30 September.

The Collective are proud to have joined forces with TerraCycle to provide a second life for all our used Suckies yoghurt Tubes, Spouches and caps across New Zealand. Every time you enjoy your Suckies Spouch, save the pouch and cap to recycle them with TerraCycle.

How it works

Participating is completely free and very easy.

Firstly, join the programme by signing into your online TerraCycle 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. 

What you can recycle in this programme

Programme accepted waste: The Collective Suckies Spouches (yoghurt pouches), caps, tubs, packaging and yoghurt tubes.

Best practices for recycling

Place your collected waste in any secure plastic bag to avoid any leakage, place the bag in a box, seal the box and drop it off at your closest New Zealand Post office. Additionally, if you choose to rinse your product, please note that is must be completely dry prior to shipping. You cannot ship dripping packages. 

What happens to the waste

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


TerraCycle Points

For every shipment over 2kg, you will be awarded $1.00 per 1kg of Spouches and caps collected to donate to the non-profit organisation or school of your choice. To learn more about our points program, click here.
