How it works

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

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 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.
