A new program from Mountain House allows you to send in your used Mountain House meals to be recycled.
Mountain House recently partnered with TerraCycle in order to bring a free recycling program to Mountain House consumers in an effort to reduce waste and keep their meal pouches out of landfills.
You even earn reward points which turn into donations for a school or non-profit of your choice.
This program is only open to the United States and pouches will need to have all food debris removed from them before sending. If you opt to wash or rinse out your pouch, you will need to make sure it has completely dried out before sending them in.
How to Recycle Mountain House Pouches:
- Create a free account on TerraCycle.com and join the Free Mountain House recycling program.
- Save your used Mountain House pouches instead of throwing them away.
- When you are ready to recycle them, box them all up, log in to your TerraCycle account, click on profile & click “Get Shipping Label” to have a pre-paid shipping label emailed to you. Print off your
pre-paidshipping label and attach it to your box.
- Drop off your box at your nearest UPS store.
While you are at it, browse their other free recycling programs and join those whose products you use frequently.
