Playground Credits may be earned by voting and/or recycling used, post-consumer oral care product packaging and products through the Colgate® Oral Care Recycling Program. A school must be registered in the Colgate® Oral Care Recycling Program in order to participate. Each vote will count as one (1) Playground Credit and each unit of used, post-consumer oral care waste will count as one (1) Playground Credit. A "unit" is defined as 0.02 lbs of used, post-consumer oral care products and packaging.
To start recycling for Playground Credits, a school simply needs to sign up for the Colgate® Oral Care Recycling Program. Every unit of used, post-consumer oral care waste received between March 12 and June 30 will count as one (1) Playground Credit for that school.
Ship your used, post-consumer oral care waste in to TerraCycle as you normally would. You will earn one (1) Playground Credit for every unit recycled through the Colgate® Oral Care Recycling Program. Encourage recycling at your school to increase the number of units we receive from you between March 12 and June 30. All shipments received by June 30 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.
