Recycling in partnership with Right Guard®
TerraCycle® and Right Guard® have partnered to create AEROCYCLE, a free recycling programme for used anti-perspirant and deodorant aerosols, and a fundraising opportunity for drop-off point administrators. In addition we will be converting the aluminium from the used aerosol deos into outdoor community gyms.
This programme will initially run through 50 public drop-off points only.
Participation in the AEROCYCLE recycling programme is completely free and very easy. Everyone can participate in the collection campaign by going to their nearest collection point.
The used anti-perspirant and deodorant aerosols will be recycled into outdoor community gyms in collaboration with The Great Outdoor Gym Company.
Please ensure aerosol deos are empty for storage and transportation.
Once collected the aerosols are taken to a licensed depot where any residual gases and liquids are removed. The aerosols are then broken down into smaller pieces and the plastic and metal components seperated. The plastic components are extracted for recycling and the metal components are smelted into ingots. These ingots are then rolled into aluminium sheets to create new products. In this complete recycling process, the aluminium from the used aerosol deos will be turned into outdoor community gyms.
TerraCycle points can be redeemed by the public drop-off administrator for a variety of charitable gifts, product bundles or for a payment of £0.01 per point to the non-profit organization or school of their choice. The charity beneficiary associated with each location is listed on the map above. To learn more about our points programme, click here.
