Best practices for recycling

We encourage you to reuse the box your supplements come in as your collection box. Please wait until this box is full of nutritional supplement packaging to minimize the transportation carbon footprint for this program. You don’t need to clean the packaging before sending it to TerraCycle, but please remove as much of the remaining product as possible. UPS will not accept dripping packages, so please make sure your items are dry.

What happens to your recyclables

Once collected, your supplement packaging is cleaned and melted into hard plastic that can be remolded to make new recycled products, such as park benches and picnic tables. Click here to learn more about the recycling process.


Shipments in the Pure Encapsulations and Beyond Recycling Program can be any weight to earn points, and 100 points per pound will be awarded.

Awarded TerraCycle points can be allocated toward a variety of charitable gifts or redeemed as a payment of $0.01 per point to the non-profit organization or school of your choice. Each piece of nutritional supplement packaging sent in will earn approximately 2.5 TerraCycle points and will be counted based on an average unit weight of .025 pounds.
