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.
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.
