Recycle your used electric toothbrushes through this program.
TerraCycle and Colgate® are proud to announce the first recycling program for electric toothbrushes in Australia! Join the program today to give a second life to your used electric toothbrushes.
Please note: this program has strict shipping guidelines, see below for more details.
This program has strict shipping guidelines due to the transportation of batteries. Please read through this check list before shipping your waste:
Participating is completely free and very easy. Simply follow these steps:
Print out your two labels and tape them securely onto your box. Ship the box to TerraCycle by dropping it off at your nearby post office. It's that easy!
Please note: Send your electric toothbrush heads in the Oral Care Recycling program, not with the electric toothbrush handles and bases. Please do not combine these two programs into one box.
Program accepted waste: All brands of electric toothbrush handles, electric toothbrush bases and sonic battery powered toothbrush handles.
Once collected, the electric toothbrushes are dismantled and separated into metals/electrical components, batteries and plastics, the plastics are then shredded and melted into pellets that can be remolded to make new recycled products while the metals are separated and recovered.
