How it works

This program is coming soon. Start collecting your waste and stay tuned to our social media and emails to be the first to know when you can join.

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:

  1. Request to join the program by clicking "Join the program" above.
  2. Set up your recycling station using the resources provided.
  3. The address listed in your TerraCycle account will be posted on the publicly available Community Collection Hubs map. Individuals in your area will use your location to drop off their aerosol waste. 
  4. Download a free shipping label from your TerraCycle profile, affix it to your box of waste and take it to your closest Australia Post to ship.

What you can recycle in this program

Program accepted waste: Any brand of used hair aerosol packaging, including:

  • All brands of steel and aluminium hair aerosols

Please note: If you are also recycling hair care & colour packaging please collect this waste in a separate box and ensure it is shipped with a label from the correct
recycling program due to hazardous waste.

What happens to the waste

Once collected, the hair aerosol packaging is 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.


TerraCycle Points

For each kilogram of used hair aerosol packaging that you send to TerraCycle, you will receive $1 in TerraCycle Points, which can be redeemed for a payment to the non-profit organisation or school of your choice.

There is no minimum shipment weight required to earn points, although we encourage hubs to collect a few months of waste with their community before sending in a parcel!
