Recycle all oral care products and packaging through this programme
TerraCycle® and Colgate® have partnered to create a free recycling programme for all oral care products and packaging. The programme also offers participants the opportunity to fundraise for their favourite school or charity.
Participating is completely free and very easy.
When you want to post a shipment, download a free UPS label from your account, attach it to your shipment and then simply order a free pick-up via UPS by calling 03457 877 877 or book a collection online here. UPS will then collect from your location. You can also drop-off your parcel at your closest UPS drop-off point, which you can find here.
In order to recycle this waste stream properly, please make sure all excess product has been removed (i.e. leftover product) and place all the accepted packaging in a box. If you choose to rinse your product, please note that it must be completely dry prior to shipping. Tape the box together securely ensuring there are no loose edges or corners. Print your label and attach it securely to the shipment.
Once collected, the oral care products and packaging are separated by polymer type, cleaned, and extruded into plastic pellets 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.
