Recycling - FAQ - 1

Frequently Asked Questions

Can't I just recycle these pouches on my own?

Yes! Our pouches are recyclable. But we can help you make sure your packaging stays out of our oceans and landfills. We have found that not every local recycling program can handle every type of plastic out there, and will dump it into landfills. We can help you make sure that doesn't happen.

I lost my mailing form. Can I get another one - or what is the address where I should mail my empty pouches?

Need to fill out the form again? No problem. Just head over to this page here.

Just need the mailing address? Great! Send your empty pouches to:

Dell Cove Spices & More Co.
Attn: Recycling
1221 Hartzell Street
Suite 4
New Haven, IN  46774

What happens to my empty package when I send it in?

We collect the packaging at our warehouse in New Haven, Indiana. Once a quarter, we will drive up to the Brightmark recycling facility in Ashley, Indiana, to drop off the empty packages. Brightmark takes all sorts of plastic - including straws, plastic wrap, food packaging and even children's toys that have been thrown out.

Once there, Brightmark's staff shreds the packaging, dries it and crushes it into pellets. The pellets are then heated and vaporized in an oxygen starved environment - and the vapor is captured and cooled.

That liquid is then converted into wax - which is being used by candle makers in California - and a commercial grade ultra-low sulfur diesel, which can be used by farmers to run their tractors and combines out on the farm, as well as truck drivers hauling your packages across the country.
