This map is constantly being updated

View all participating public drop-off locations on the interactive map above.

A public drop-off location is a communal collection point where local people can take their TerraCycle® waste. Each public drop-off location is listed on the interactive map above. When you drop-off your waste at a public drop-off location, the TerraCycle points earned for the waste are transferred to the account of the public drop-off location administrator in question, who can then donate the points to the charity of their choice.

Before you go to a public drop-off location with your waste, we advise you check the details (full address, opening hours and location of collection box at the site) and when a telephone number is listed its worth calling just to check they are still participating.

This map is updated when new public drop-off locations are added or removed, so we recommend you  consult it in advance of each time you plan to drop off your waste.

If you are interested in setting up a  public drop-off location for your community then please fill out this form.
You don't have to become a public drop-off location to send us your waste. You can become a private collector simply by joining the Cracker and Biscuit Wrapper recycling programme.

How it works

Participating is completely free and very easy. Review the FAQ for more detailed information
 

What you can recycle in this programme

Best practices for recycling

Make sure all excess product has been removed (i.e food residue) and place all cracker and biscuit wrappers in the box. Tape the box together securely ensuring there are no loose edges or corners. Print your label and attach it securely to the shipment.
 

What happens to the waste

Once collected, the cracker and biscuit wrappers 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.

LEARN MORE ABOUT PLADIS

Pladis is a family of bakers and chocolatiers who make some of the UK's best-loved biscuits (McVitie’s and go ahead!), crackers (Carr’s) and chocolates (Godiva).
They've been around for over 200 years. In that time a lot has changed, but one thing that hasn’t is their commitment to sustainability and safeguarding the future of the planet.
That’s why they have partnered with us - a first for the industry – encouraging consumers to help end the waste of resources by sending in their used wrappers to be recycled.
