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 shipment. Check the specific program page for how many points will be earned per shipment.
Once credited, the points can be redeemed as financial donations to the school or non-profit chosen by the owner of the points. The points must be redeemed on the TerraCycle website.
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
- If you don't have an account, sign up to create one
- Visit this page, and fill in the details
- Once this is done, please contact Customer Support, so they can approve the school or non-profit
Once approved, you can redeem points for your chosen school or non-profit. Instructions can be found here.
