Recycling in partnership with McVitie's®
TerraCycle® and McVitie's® have partnered to create a free recycling programme for any brand of biscuit wrappers, and a fundraising opportunity for participants.
There is no minimum shipment size on the McVitie’s® Biscuit Wrapper Recycling Programme
Participating is completely free and very easy.
When you want to post a shipment, download a free UPS label from your account, attach it to your shipment and then simply order a free pick-up via UPS by calling 03457 877 877 or book a collection online here. UPS will then collect from your location. You can also drop-off your parcel at your closest UPS drop-off point, which you can find here.
Make sure all excess product has been removed (i.e food residue) and place all 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.
Once collected, the 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.
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.
Below you will find posters and an editable letter to hand out to local businesses; coffee shops, cafes, restaurants, nursing homes and the like. The letter is asking others to save their biscuit wrappers to help raise your collections.
Icons to use on your facebook, twitter or instagram account in order to boost your collection.
Below you wil find fun DIY projects that you can do together with your friends and family.
