Every year millions of cookie and cracker wrappers end up in dumpsters and landfills across Canada. TerraCycle® is working to provide a second life for these wrappers and implement environmentally-friendly solutions for this waste.
And like our other Brigade programs, you'll also earn TerraCycle points per unit of waste you recycle. Each wrapper your location sends in will earn 1 point or $.01 to the non-profit of your choice. Cookie and cracker wrapper shipments will be counted based on weight. Click here to learn more about the TerraCycle Points Program!
This recycling program is completely free. There are no signup or participation fees, and the shipping is covered by Mr. Christie’s. To get started, click the “JOIN NOW” button and follow the instructions below.
