TerraCycle points are credited to the accounts of private collectors and public drop-off point administrators as a reward for their collection efforts. The number of points given is determined by the total weight of the parcel. Check the specific programme page for how many points will be earned per shipment.
Once credited, the points can be redeemed as financial donations to the charity or school chosen by the owner of the points. The points must be redeemed on the TerraCycle website.
Your TerraCycle points may be redeemed directly for your school or an organisation of your choice. Please note, you must redeem a minimum of 3500 TerraCycle points, or $35.
To add a new school or non-profit:
- Log in to your TerraCycle account
- Go to this page, and fill in the details.
- Once this has been done, please contact Customer Support to let them know, so they can approve the school or charity.
Once approved, you can redeem points to your chosen school or non-profit. Instructions can be found here.
