TerraCycle

We’ve partnered with TerraCycle so our residents can recycle the non-recyclable!

For the next six months, residents of Blackburn with Darwen can recycle dental care products, biscuit and snack wrappers, coffee packaging and Pringles tubes at our Household Waste Recycling Centres.

How does it work?


  1. Collect product packaging at home
  2. Request free recycling labels using the form below
  3. Stick your label to any plastic bag of your choice (preferably a clear one, but any will do)
  4. Drop off the full plastic bag at your local Household Waste Recycling Centre

What items can I recycle?

  • All Pringles® tubes. Note: the lids can be recycled kerbside.

  • All brands of biscuit, cracker and cake wrappers. Note: chocolate bar wrappers and biscuit trays are not accepted.
