Together with the Tweed | TerraCycle Cannabis Packaging Recycling Program, we can all help make sure landfills don’t grow.

Section Container

Cannabis packaging has been designed to keep your products fresh and safe from kids. The downside is that it’s not as environmentally friendly as we’d like it to be. So we’ve done something about it.

 

Tweed has partnered with TerraCycle to develop the first national recycling program in the Canadian cannabis industry. When you take part — which is surprisingly easy to do — you’re contributing to a future where your packaging gets a second life.

What is this program exactly?

It’s a program designed to keep cannabis packaging out of landfills. When the packaging arrives at TerraCycle’s facility, they take it, clean it, and melt it down into plastic pellets that can be transformed into new products...which can be recycled again and turned into newer products, things like watering cans and park benches and loads more.

 

It’s a beautiful cycle fit for our beautiful planet.

But wait, who is TerraCycle?

Simply put, they’re a global leader in recycling hard-to-recycle waste. Instead of incinerating or landfilling it, they move waste away from a linear system into a circular one, meaning your cannabis packaging can keep cycling through our economy rather than sitting in a hole somewhere.

What kind of packaging is accepted?

Here’s something really great: this program recycles any and all cannabis packaging purchased from any and all licensed retailers. 

 

Outer packaging, inner packaging, tins, joint tubes, plastic bottles, plastic caps, and flexible plastic bags.

 

If it came from a from a licensed producer, it will have a red THC logo on it, and if it has that logo, you can recycle it with us. 

 

As comprehensive as this program is, people in some municipalities across Canada will not need to use it — there are local curbside recycling programs that do accept certain cannabis packaging. Click here to learn more about figuring out the recycling rules in your community.

 

Since the Tweed | TerraCycle Cannabis Packaging Recycling Program launched in October 2018, with your help we’ve hit some pretty big totals:
