How it works

Participating in this recycling program is free and rewarding.

BECOME A PUBLIC LOCATION

You can become a public drop-off point for the RB Health & Nutrition Recycling Program and build up the national recycling network! Businesses, colleges, preschools and daycares, municipalities, community organizations, gyms, and medical offices are encouraged to sign up. Please note that this program does not accept any prescription bottles for recycling.

If you become a local recycling solution for this program, individuals and community members have the opportunity to drop off their collections with you. You will be able to ship the packaging your location collects to TerraCycle for free and earn TerraCycle points for your shipments. 

Remember: The more points you earn, the more you can redeem for a cash donation to the nonprofit, school, or charity of your choice.

What happens to your recyclables

Once collected, the waste is broken down and separated by material. Plastics are cleaned and pelletized, and metals are melted down.

Rewards

Shipments in the RB Health & Nutrition Recycling Program must be at least 4 pounds to earn TerraCycle points. For all qualifying shipments, 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 RB Health & Nutrition packaging sent in will earn approximately 5 TerraCycle points and will be counted based on an average unit weight of .05 pounds.
