Recycling in partnership with McVitie's®, Carr's® and Go Ahead®
TerraCycle®, McVitie's®, Carr's® and Go Ahead® have partnered to create a free recycling programme for any brand of biscuit, cracker and cake wappers, and a fundraising opportunity for participants.
From the 1st of October 2018, every parcel of cracker, biscuit and cake wrappers will have to weigh 1kg minimum (about 417 wrappers) to receive TerraCycle points.
Participating is completely free and very easy. Review the FAQ for more detailed information
Make sure all excess product has been removed (i.e food residue) and place all biscuit, cracker and cake wappers 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.
Once collected, the biscuit, cracker and cake wappers 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.
TerraCycle® points can be redeemed for a variety of charitable gifts or a payment of €0.01 to the non-profit organisation of your choice. For more information about our points programme, click here.
