TerraCycle and Colgate® have partnered to create a free recycling program for dental care product packaging. This program accepts all brands.
What can you recycle?
- Toothpaste tubes & caps
- Manual toothbrushes
- Electric toothbrush heads only
- Toothbrush & toothpaste tube plastic packaging
- Floss containers
Not accepted: Please recycle your cardboard packaging in your kerbside recycling bin. Electronic toothbrush handles and bases are not recyclable through this program.
To recycle this waste stream properly, please make sure excess product has been removed (leftover toothpaste or floss). Please note that everything must also be dry.
