Recycling

Let's get together and help the planet — what do ya say?

No one likes to add more waste into landfills, least of all us. So we partnered with TerraCycle to develop the first national recycling program in the Canadian cannabis industry.

 

“But who is this TerraCycle?” we hear you ask. TerraCycle is a global leader in providing waste collection programs for hard-to-recycle materials. To put it plainly, they’re good people.

 

Here’s how it all works.

What can I recycle?

All our packaging. Our snazzy tin containers, plastic bottles, plastic caps, and flexible plastic bags. Oh, and our joint tubes too. See? Lots of stuff.

 

In fact, we’ll happily accept discarded packaging from all other licensed cannabis brands too. If it has this flashy little logo on it, we'll recycle it.

 

How do I do it?

First off, you don’t need to clean the packaging. All you have to do is take out as much of the product as possible, then either get yourself down to a Tweed or partner retail store and drop it into one of the handy Tweed x TerraCycle bins.  Or, you can register with Tweed and TerraCycle and the waste will be picked up directly from the address you provide to UPS. That’s it.

 

Create an account for the Tweed x TerraCycle Cannabis Packaging Recycling Program as an individual or as a retail partner.

What happens to the stuff?

TerraCycle takes it, cleans it, and melts it down into plastic pellets that can be transformed into new products...which can be recycled again and turned into newer products. It’s a truly beautiful cycle.

We're all in this together

This program relies a lot on you. For it to be as effective as it can be, the packaging needs to make its way back to a Tweed store, a partner retail store, or through the mail back to TerraCycle. So a big thank-you in advance. You’re an awesome steward of the Earth. If you have any questions, or want to know how you can get more involved, visit our page on TerraCycle.ca or give us a shout. We really appreciate your help with this.
