There might be a few reasons why you're unable to request a prepaid shipping label.
- You haven’t joined a programme yet
Here at TerraCycle we aim to grow communities of collectors to make our programmes as effective as possible. As a result, we do not accept recycling sent to us by individual collectors unless you have joined a programme. For more information on the programmes we're currently offering, please click here. You can take part in each programme by visiting the respective programme page and reading the ‘How it works’ section.
- The programme is on waitlist
Many of our recycling programmes have enjoyed incredible success thanks to the great recycling efforts of thousands of consumers. Running programmes of this scale entail a significant cost and unfortunately, some programmes have currently reached capacity. We are now looking at methods to collect larger volumes in an economically sustainable way - this is why the programme is waitlisted and shipping labels are not available.
- Changes have been made to the programme
Due to the growing popularity of our programmes, at times we may have to amend programme rules. To make our programmes more efficient, we sometimes change the types of collectors who can be registered for the programme (e.g. allocate more spaces to public drop-off points over private collectors), or the types of organisations we partner with (e.g. vets for pet food packaging). Please rest assured that all changes are announced well in advance to all collectors registered for the specific programme, so we would urge you to check your emails from TerraCycle.
