Jerky Bag Return Program

Jerky Bag Return


Here at Dick Duff’s, we care about three things: 

  1. Incredible jerky - We think we’ve nailed this part.

  2. Sustainability - We’re always on the lookout to source and operate as sustainably as possible.

  3. YOU! - We aim to deliver a consistently amazing customer experience, which includes addressing your questions and needs.

One question we often get asked is: Is your packaging recyclable?

The short answer is: Yes and no.

Here’s why…

For food safety reasons, our bags must contain a “barrier layer” which reduces the transmission of oxygen and moisture through the bag. Without this barrier layer, our products would be susceptible to mould growth. And no one likes mouldy food. Unless it’s blue cheese, then it’s delicious. 

Unfortunately, everyday municipal recycling facilities do not have the ability to recycle our multi-layered plastic bags. And for this reason, you cannot throw our jerky bags into your blue box.

However, we know where our jerky bags can be recycled, and we will help get them there through our new Jerky Bag Return Program.

For every 12 empty bags of Dick Duff’s Organic Jerky you return to us, we will give you a free bag of jerky with your next online purchase of any size from our website*. 

12 empty bags = 1 FREE bag of jerky!

We are committed to sustainability and want to work with you to make it happen. We will send all returned bags to be recycled by Terra Cycle – an innovative recycling company specializing in hard-to-recycle materials – at our cost.

So, pop those bags in the mail with your name, shipping address, email address, and flavour of choice, and we will include your free bag with your next online order.

Ship empty bags to: Dick Duff’s Inc., 166 Prospect Street, Newmarket, ON L3Y 3T6
