Recyling problems

It all begins with your purchase

Why should I prioritize buying products that use 100% recycled plastic? What are the benefits?

Every time you choose Hellmann’s you are supporting us to create a less wasteful world. Using recycled plastic has the following environmental benefits:

• Reduces the bottles sent to landfills

• Supports the recycling infrastructure

• Is less reliant on natural resources like petroleum

• Requires less energy and leaves a lower carbon footprint

Recyling problems

Empty your Hellmann's jar / bottle before throwing it away

Clean jars are more likely to be successfully recycled than dirty ones. We encourage you to always use the very last bit of your Hellmann’s, so you help us to guarantee no food or packaging waste.

Recycle your bottle / jar

How should consumers recycle the new jars and bottles?

Consumers can recycle the entire Hellmann’s Mayonnaise plastic jar, dressing jar and squeezy plastic bottle. The squeeze bottles require consumers to remove the shrink wrapper and squeeze cap before recycling. We encourage consumers to quickly rinse their jars and squeeze bottles before recycling and follow their local municipal recycling guidelines.
