Hassle-free recycling

PackBack was inspired by two customers who have been with us since the very beginning. Sharon and Michael reached out to check if we’re able to reuse any of the packaging from their Tasteback orders and that got us thinking…what can we do to help our customers who are not able to recycle as much as they’d like. Next, we’ve teamed up with TerraCycle to make it happen and since then we’ve been reimagining grocery delivery for a kinder, sustainable world.

When you give back your packaging, not only are you helping to keep waste out of landfills, you’re also helping to continue to create beautiful & useful products like benches or picnic tables or playground equipment.

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 literally everything that came in your TasteBack order. From paper bags to the meat or fish packaging, beer cans, soda bottles you name it. Please note all the packaging has to be cleaned beforehand.

Who is TerraCycle?

TerraCycle is a recycling enterprise that has found that nearly everything we touch can be recycled and they focus on collecting typically hard-to-recycle items. We work with them to divert plastic materials to reach landfills. The collected waste is mechanically and/or manually separated into the various forms of plastic that make it up. The separated plastics then undergo extrusion and pelletisation to be moulded into new recycled plastic products such as benches, picnic tables, playground equipment.

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 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.

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.
