As of February 1st, there will be no minimum weight for earning TerraCycle points through the Air Care Recycling Program.

How it works

Participating is completely free and very easy.

What you can recycle in this program

Program accepted waste: All brands of air freshener cartridges and plugs,
packaging and flexible film packaging, and trigger heads.

At TerraCycle we strive to develop effective recycling solutions for items that are not widely recyclable at a local level. Through the Air Care Recycling Program we accept a range of air care products such as trigger heads, which consist of a mix of different materials and are not covered by nationwide recycling programs. In order to make the recycling process as effective as possible we do not accept plastic bottles, as these can be recycled through most municipal programs.


Recycling aerosol containers require special handling. Please take them to a recycling center that is equipped to handle aerosol containers. Click the button below for more information on recycling aerosol containers.

Best practices for recycling

In order to recycle this waste stream properly, please make sure all excess product has been removed. Additionally, if you choose to rinse your product, please note that it must be completely dry prior to shipping. You cannot ship dripping packages.

What happens to the waste

Once collected, the air care products and packaging are cleaned and melted into hard plastic that can be remolded to make new recycled products. Click here to learn more about the recycling process.
