Join this program to be listed as a Community Collection Hub and open to the public in your area.
TerraCycle and Colgate® have partnered to create a free recycling program for oral care product packaging as well as a fundraising opportunity for participants. Sign up as a Community Collection Hub to be featured on the TerraCycle map so individuals in your community can find your location to drop off their waste. Read more about becoming a Hub below.
Don't forget, shipments must be 5kg or over to be eligible for TerraCycle points through this program.
Sending larger shipments reduces the environmantal impact of your collection and helps us to make the program as efficient and sustainable as possible. Thank you for helping us recycle in a mors sustainable way!
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:
To find out more about being a Community Collection Hub and its benefits, see here.
Program accepted waste: Toothpaste tubes and caps, manual toothbrushes, electric toothbrush heads, toothbrush and toothpaste tube plastic packaging, floss containers.
Not accepted: Please recycle your cardboard packaging in your kerbside recycling bin. Electronic toothbrush handles and bases are not recyclable through this program and instead should be collected and shipped separately through the Electric Toothbrush Recycling Program, which has specific shipping requirements.
This program accepts any brand of oral care waste.
Once collected, the tubes and brushes are separated by composition, shredded and melted into plastic pelets that can be remolded to make new recycled products. Click here to learn more about the recycling process.
Shipments must be 5kg or over to be eligible for TerraCycle points through this program.
