Processing and Recycling of waste
Please send us any brand toothpaste tubes and caps, toothbrushes, toothbrush and toothpaste tube outer packaging and floss containers.
Please choose the size box you'd like to purchase. When you receive your box fill it with the appropriate waste streams. Once full, bring your box to any UPS location or schedule a collection to ship your items back to TerraCycle using the pre-paid UPS shipping label which is already affixed to your box. When we receive your box, we'll safely recycle all of the collected materials.
The collected waste is mechanically and hand separated into fibres (like wood and coated paper), plastics and other materials. The resulting fibres will be hydropulped to separate out coatings (like wax and plastics). The separated fibres will be recycled into new paper products, or composted if recycling is not possible. The resulting plastics will be recycled into plastic polymers. Flexible and rigid plastics undergo extrusion and pelletisation to be moulded into various recycled plastic products.
Please note that we will not accept organics, broken glass, bio-medical waste, soiled nappies, expired medication, pesticides, paint, pressurised canisters, and medical sharps in any of our boxes. Please send traditional recyclables through your local council system.
