Can the Ready Pasta packaging be recycled?

Through Barilla’s free recycling program with TerraCycle, consumers can recycle their Ready Pasta packaging. Simply remove all excess product (i.e. leftover pasta) and dry product completely (if rinsed). To earn a TerraCycle donation point, shipments are required to weigh over 2 lbs. However, shipments to TerraCycle can be any size. For this program, Barilla® Ready Pasta is the only acceptable waste you can ship.
