How it works

Participating is completely free and very easy.

When you are ready to send in a shipment, download a shipping label from your TerraCycle account by clicking "Ship us your waste" and follow the prompts. Your shipping label will be emailed to your inbox. Print out your label and tape it securely onto your box. Ship the box to TerraCycle by calling UPS at 1-800-PICK-UPS, informing UPS that you have a “Pre-paid Return Ship” label on a parcel that needs to be scheduled for a next business day pick up. Please ensure not to ship the box on your own UPS account, or you may be charged shipping fees.

What you can recycle in this program

Program accepted waste: Any brand of plastic snack pouches and caps

Best practices for recycling

In order to recycle this waste stream properly, please make sure all excess product has been removed (i.e. leftover applesauce). Additionally, if you choose to rinse your product, please note that it must be completely dry prior to shipping. You cannot ship dripping packages.

What happens to the waste

Once collected, the snack pouches are cleaned and melted into hard plastic that can be remolded to make new  recycled products. Click here to learn more about the recycling process.
