HAVE QUESTIONS?

How do I prepare the packaging for collection?

Please make sure you wash all the packaging that you’d like to return such as plastic containers, glass bottles, meat & fish packaging etc. Once the packaging is clean, leave it to dry. Then just pop it back into the TasteBack bag and have it ready for the driver on your next order.

What kind of packaging can I return?

We accept glass bottles and containers which we refill, compostable packaging and plastic packaging which we recycle. Please note all the packaging has to be cleaned beforehand. We don’t accept cardboard or paper as these can be recycled locally. 

How can I get Rewards?

Every time you shop products that come with a refillable, compostable or in progress symbol you earn credit. After your order is delivered and food is consumed, clean and dry the packaging, place another order and return the packaging to us. We then, clean and sterilise the packaging for refill, recycle or compost it. Shop and get automatic discounts on products from the credit earned!

Why does the credit expire in 30 days?

If the packaging is not returned within 30 days we need to replace it so as not to disrupt the closed-loop system of sanitisation and reuse for producers. This means you can keep the packaging for your own use and we use the credit to replace it.

What happens if I use the credit and I don't return the packaging?

The system is built to keep track of the packaging and the credit for the unreturned packaging will be automatically withdrawn from your account next time you acquire new credit.

Do I need to pay for this service?

No, the Pack Back service is free of charge and can be used every time a new order is delivered.

Can you pick up the packaging outside of my orders?

We charge £5 per collection outside of orders and it is free of charge when collected on a new order. If you wish to arrange a collection email us at hello@tasteback.co.uk.

Do you take food waste?

At the moment we only accept product packaging and not food scraps. We will let you know if this changes in the future.

Can I give you packaging from products not sold on Tasteback?

Sorry, due to limited capabilities at this stage we only accept packaging that came in with your TasteBack order.

How do you clean the refillable packaging?

Every package undergoes a rigorous hygienic cleaning process specially designed for bottles, jars and containers. We run all of our packaging through a commercial-grade dishwasher, heated to 80 degC for sterilisation and rinsed to inactivate bacteria, making them ready to be reused again. The high standard we maintain is similar to what you’d find in any other food packing facility.
