Taco Bell is moving to reduce waste that ends up in landfills by kicking off a partnership with TerraCycle, a major recycling company, which will make it very easy for customers to send in their single-use sauce packets for recycling. About 8.2 billion packets of Taco Bell sauce are used in the United States each year. Thanks to this partnership, Taco Bell sauce packets could soon go on to have a second life as outdoor furniture, a plastic shipping pallet, storage container, flooring tile, or material used at playgrounds and athletic fields.
Customers will be able to take these steps to recycle sauce packets:
1) Sign up for a TerraCycle account.
2) Collect empty sauce packets in a box.
3) Once your collection box is full, log into your TerraCycle account to download and print a free shipping label.
4) Ship your box via UPS.
