A school may earn Playground Credits through votes and through shipments in the Colgate® Oral Care Brigade™, a free recycling program for oral care packaging. A school must be registered in the Colgate® Oral Care Brigade™ program in order to participate. Each vote will count as one (1) Playground Credit and each shipment received through this Brigade™ will count as one (1) Playground Credit.

If you have never recycled with Colgate

To start recycling for Playground Credits, a school simply has to follow the steps outlined on the Colgate® Oral Care Brigade™ page to get started with recycling oral care packaging. Every shipment sent between March 22 and June 13 will count as one (1) Playground Credit for that school.

If you currently recycle with Colgate

Ship your oral care waste in to TerraCycle as you normally would. You will earn one (1) Playground Credit for every Colgate® Oral Care Brigade™ shipment, no matter the size and weight. Encourage recycling at your school to increase the number of shipments we receive from you between March 22nd and June 13th. All shipments received by June 13th will count towards the contest.

And don’t forget, you can earn additional Playground Credits by voting for your school of choice once per day at the top of this page.
