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 EllaCycle recycling programme.

How it works

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

When you want to post a shipment, print your label and attach it securely onto the shipment using an address label or tape. Having secured the postage label to your box, you then take your box to your local Post Office. To receive TerraCycle® points for your shipment, please ensure it weighs more than 5 kg.

What you can recycle in this programme

Programme accepted waste: Any brand of baby food pouches and any brand of baby food pouch caps.
 

Best practices for recycling

Make sure all excess product has been removed (i.e food residue) and place all baby food pouches and snack wrappers in a box, including the lids. 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 baby food pouches and snack 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.
