In the company Taco Bell has launched a pilot program that encourages customers to send back used sauce packs so they can be recycled so we can do more for the planet.

The company said that currently more than eight billion packages of sauces are thrown in U.S. landfills each year, and it’s time to change that.

Taco Bell fans can register for an account here, collect the used sauce packs in a box and print a free label that sends the box back to the fast food chain via UPS.

This program, in partnership with the recycling company TerraCycle, does not accept sauce packages from establishments other than Taco Bell – so don’t keep your McDonald’s sauces there.

Before you add your last sauce pack in the collection box, be sure to remove as much of the sauce from the residue as possible to prevent contamination of other recycled materials.

Besides, it is advised clients will only ship their boxes when they are full to “minimize the carbon footprint of this program’s transportation.”

If this initiative eventually a hit, we can see other fast food chains come up with their own recycling programs.

Taco Bell still there are plans to do more. As per PassIt also plans that all packaging will be recyclable, compostable or reusable by 2025.
