We’ve made getting started with the Colgate Electric Toothbrush Free Recycling Program easy! Simply download a free shipping label to ship your electric toothbrushes to TerraCycle, and we’ll recycle them.
Create a TerraCycle account and join this program. Then reuse any box you have to start collecting your electric toothbrushes.
Print Free Label
When your box is full, sign-in to your TerraCycle account to download and print a prepaid shipping label. You will also be required to print a battery hazard label, available in the resources section of this page.
Seal your box, affix the prepaid shipping label and battery hazard label, and send it to us to be recycled.
Participating in this program is easy and FREE! See answers to frequently-asked questions here.
No, you do not need to clean the items before shipping them to TerraCycle for recycling, but Australia Post will not accept dripping items, so please make sure your items are dry.
We encourage you to ship multiple items at once to minimise the footprint of this program. Australia Post will not accept packaging weighing over 20kg or any dripping packages, so please make sure your items are dry.
NOTE: Please make sure you read the important shipping requirements below.
Colgate® sponsors this national recycling program making it free for you to participate.
All brands of electric toothbrush handles, electric toothbrush bases and sonic battery powered toothbrush handles can be recycled through this program.
Please do not send loose batteries for recycling as part of this program
