Please see the below image for examples of waste that are accepted through this free recycling program. You may download this image as a useful poster by clicking here.

This free recycling program is brand-specific, which means you can only recycle packaging of this particular brand. Please refer to the accepted waste poster for the types of waste that are accepted.

No, your shipment can be any size. To earn the TerraCycle point donation, however, your shipment must weigh over 1 lb. Remember, the shipment size requirement is applicable only if you would like to earn TerraCycle points.

No, you do not need to clean the waste before sending it in to TerraCycle. However, please remove as much of the remaining product as possible before shipping. And please remember, UPS will not accept dripping packages, so make sure your waste is dry prior to shipping.

After you have joined a TerraCycle Recycling Program, you may print a free, pre-paid shipping label by going to Profile on the top right side of the website. Then click “Send Us Your Waste.” The list of free recycling programs that you are currently registered for will appear. Then select “Get Shipping Label” under the appropriate program.  Please note that you will need to be logged in to your TerraCycle account to print shipping labels.

To earn TerraCycle points, your shipments must weigh at least 1 lb. If your shipment meets or exceeds the shipment size requirement, each piece of waste your location sends in will earn you about 2 TerraCycle points. NOW Foods® flexible packaging will be counted based on an average unit weight of 0.02 lbs.
