UKVending joins forces with TerraCycle to increase levels of recycling

Recycling is all about innovations and sometimes about changing minds. UKV has been at the forefront of doing both for over fifty years and in 2023 we are working with Terracycle to offer new and exciting ways to recycle Flavia drinks sachets.

We have signed up to several recycling programmes offered by TerraCycle that allow the community to drop usually unrecyclable everyday items off to be recycled that would ordinarily go to landfill or incineration. TerraCycle run hundreds of similar schemes up and down the country including at schools were items ranging from Pringles tubes, plastic cheese packaging, coffee bags, old used toothbrushes and even beauty products are collected and recycled. In the process the organisations involved raise money for charitable causes. In one case the recycling effort raised enough money for one school to buy an invaluable and lifesaving defibrillator.

The collected items are sent to TerraCycle and are recycled by shredding, cleaning and turning into plastic pellets which can then be used by manufacturers to create new generic plastic products, such as outdoor equipment – reducing the need to extract new resources from the planet.
