Recycle your dish and air care packaging through this program.

Give your dish and air care products a second life with Fairy, Ambi Pur and TerraCycle

How it works

Participating in your home, office, school or organisation is completely free and very easy.

Ship empty packaging to TerraCycle for free

Collect your empty dish and air care packaging in any box. When you are ready to send in a shipment, download a shipping label from your TerraCycle account by clicking “Request a postage label” and follow the prompts. Print out your label and tape it securely onto your box. Ship the box to Terracycle by dropping it off at your nearest post office.

What you can recycle in this program

Program accepted waste: Any brand of dish care and air care packaging, including:

  • Dishwashing liquid bottles (including caps)
  • Dishwashing tablets flexible packaging (including snap locks and zip locks)
  • Plastic spray bottles (including spray and trigger heads)
  • Air fresheners and refills (including plug-ins and plastic outer packaging)
  • Air freshener aerosol cans.
  • Clip-on car fresheners and refills (including plastic outer packaging) 

Please note: cardboard and paper packaging is recyclable through regular Council recycling. Please do not include these in your collections for this program.

While we accept all Fairy products in this program, some bottles may also be accepted through kerbside recycling - check with your council first.

What happens to the waste

Once collected, the dish and air care packaging is sorted, cleaned and melted into hard plastic that can be remolded to make new recycled products. Click here for more information about our recycling process.


TerraCycle Points

Each unit of dish and air care packaging that you send to TerraCycle can be redeemed for a payment of AU$0.02 to the non-profit organisation or school of your choice. 

There is no minimum shipment weight required to earn points, although we encourage collectors to collect multiple items before sending in their parcel!
