We’ve made getting started with the MECCA Beauty Product Free Recycling Program easy! Simply drop your beauty empties off at any MECCA store, and we’ll recycle it.
Participating in this program is easy and FREE! See answers to frequently-asked questions here.
No, you do not need to clean the packaging before dropping it off for recycling, but please remove as much of the remaining product as possible before dropping it off at your nearest MECCA store. Hubs will not accept dripping items, so please make sure your items are dry.
NOTE: Packaging that has been cut open to remove excess product can still be recycled by TerraCycle
MECCA sponsors this national recycling program making it free for you to participate.
Any brand of cosmetic, hair care or skincare packaging.
The program does not accept:
Packaging still containing lots of product
Aerosol cans or perfume bottles
Wooden makeup pencils
Makeup wipes or cloth face masks
Nail polish bottles and nail polish remover bottles
Bags, brushes, makeup sponges, false eyelashes, eyelash curlers and other beauty accessories
Outer cardboard packaging can be recycled with your local council, so please don’t include this in your shipment to TerraCycle.
Once collected, the beauty empties are cleaned and separated by material type. The fibres and plastics are recycled into raw formats that manufacturers use to make new products.
