How it works

Participating is completely free and very easy. 

What you can recycle in this programme

Programme accepted waste:

  • plastic bottle caps and plastic trigger heads (used for air care and home cleaning products such as kitchen /bathroom cleaner sprays)
  • flexible wipe packaging (used for home cleaning products)
  • pumps and caps for home cleaning products
  • plastic air freshener packaging (please remove any cardboard and recycle these with your household collections)
  • plastic air fresheners and air freshener cartridges.


 

At TerraCycle we strive to develop effective recycling solutions for items that are not widely recyclable at a local level. On the Air and Home Care Recycling Programme we accept a range of air and home care products such as bottle caps, which consist of a mix of different materials and are not covered by nationwide recycling schemes. In order to make the recycling process as effective as possible we do not however accept plastic bottles, as these can be recycled through most local council collections.

Best practices for recycling

In order to recycle this waste stream properly, please make sure all excess product has been removed (i.e. cleaning product). Additionally, if you choose to rinse your product, please note that it must be completely dry prior to shipping. You cannot ship dripping packages.  
 

What happens to the waste

Once collected, the air care and home cleaning product packaging is cleaned and melted into hard plastic that can be remolded to make new recycled products. Click here to learn more about the recycling process.
