Recycling in partnership with Febreze®
TerraCycle® and Febreze® have partnered to create a free recycling programme for air freshener and home care waste, and a fundraising opportunity for participants.
This programme is currently full.
You can drop off your air freshener and home care waste at any of the existing network of public drop-off locations that you can locate on our interactive map. Please use the post code search facility on the map below to find your nearest location.
The Air and Home Care Recycling Programme is currently full. Thanks to the interactive map, you can find the closest public drop-off location by simply entering your post code in the search bar. Then you just have to drop your air freshener and home care waste at the address indicated during business hours. The person in charge of the public drop-off location will send the air freshener and home care waste to TerraCycle® for recycling.
Programme accepted waste:
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.
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.
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.
TerraCycle points can be redeemed for a variety of charitable gifts or a payment of £0.01 to the non-profit organisation of your choice. For more information about our points programme, click here.
Below you will find posters, social media icons, and an editable letter to hand out to local businesses. The letter is targeted at cleaning companies, coffee shops, cafes and the like, and outlines the Air and Home Care Recycling Programme. The letter is asking others to save their Air and Home Care packaging to help raise your collections.
Febreze® is excited to partner with TerraCycle to bring a national solution for air freshener and home care products. To learn more about Febreze®, click here.
