Tetra Pak, Nestlé and Tesco to Spearhead Recycling Campaign in 14 Tesco Hypermarkets and 5 Schools

Recycling Campaign to Feature the First of its Kind Recycling Vending Machine in Malaysia
Tetra Pak (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd, Nestlé (Malaysia) Berhad and Tesco Stores (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd are collaborating for a second consecutive year to organise a recycling campaign aimed at driving awareness on the importance of recycling and increase the collection of used beverage cartons. The campaign kicks off today for two months in 14 Tesco Hypermarkets and five schools in the Klang Valley.
This year’s campaign will also feature a first of its kind recycling vending machine where consumers can slot in their used beverage cartons to redeem Nestlé MILO packs and collect Tesco Clubcard points. For every 10 Nestlé branded packet drinks that consumers bring to Tesco to recycle, they will be entitled to a RM1 rebate off their purchase for a MILO UHT (1litre) pack. Additionally, Tesco Clubcard members will be entitled to redeem 1 Clubcard point for every used beverage carton that they recycle at the vending machine.
Beginning 1 October until 30 November, consumers are encouraged to bring their used beverage cartons to any of the 14 participating Tesco Hypermarkets in the Klang Valley. Additionally, in an effort to educate the younger generation on the importance of recycling, five schools have been selected and provided with a recycling vending machine. The selected schools are SK Sri Kelana, SK Ampang Campuran, SJK Pandamaran B, SJK Pui Ying, and SK Pusat Bandar Puchong (1). All the used beverage cartons collected from the 14 Tesco Hypermarkets and five schools will then be sent to a paper mill where it will be processed into recycled paper and other items such as roofing sheets, pencil cases or CD holders.
