Would your Family Recycle Crisps Packets for Charity?

Did you know that you can turn your family’s empty crisp packets into donations for charity and not for profit organisations?

TerraCycle and Walkers have partnered to create a free recycling scheme which accepts all brands of crisps packets.

You can drop-off your used crisp packets at public drop-off locations across West Wales and when the drop off location sends them off, they are given reward points, which means you could help raise money for local good causes.


How they are Recycled

The science of recycling is focused on recovering the materials that an object is made of. For example, recycling a used pen involves shredding it, separating the materials that it was made from, then melting those materials into raw materials that can be then used to make new recycled products.

So once your crisp packets are collected, the packets will be shredded before being turned into practical outdoor products such as garden benches or watering cans.

By volume, TerraCycle recycles over 97% of the waste they collect.
