Join this program to be listed as a Community Collection Hub and open to the public in your area.
Due to the nature of the waste, it is required that all packages shipped through this program adhere to the following regulations:
The Community Collection Hub network is a network of locations around Australia where members of the community can take their 'non-recyclable' waste to be recycled with TerraCycle.
Becoming a Hub is the most sustainable way to collect TerraCycle waste. Bigger shipments mean less environmental impact, while earning more donations for the charity or school of your choice. Here's how it works:

Program accepted waste: Any brand of used razor blades and their packaging, including:
Please note: cardboard and paper packaging is recyclable through regular Council recycling. Please do not include these in your collections for this program.
Once collected, the razor blades and their packaging are broken down and separated by material. Plastics are cleaned and pelletised to be recycled into new products, and metal materials are sent for smelting and conversion to new alloys. Click here for more information about our recycling process.
For each unit of used razor blades and packaging that you send to TerraCycle, you will receive one TerraCycle Point, which can be redeemed for a payment of AU$0.01 to the non-profit organisation or school of your choice, such as Movember or Foodbank.
There is no minimum shipment weight required to earn points, although we encourage collectors to collect a few months of waste with your friends and family before sending in a parcel!
