Join this program to be listed as a Community Collection Hub and open to the public in your area.
TerraCycle and Schwarzkopf have partnered to create a recycling program for any brand of used hair aerosol packaging!
Looking to become a Community Collection Hub for hair care & colour packaging? Click here to see the Schwarzkopf Cares Hair Care & Colour Recycling Program.
Please note: this program has strict shipping guidelines, see below for more details.
To ship back your Aerosols to be recycled please follow the steps in the "How it works" section below.
Please ensure your collection box is clearly labelled to indicate aerosols must be completely empty (when you hold down the nozzle no more product comes out) and have their caps on.
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:
When you are ready to ship in your waste please follow the steps below.
Program accepted waste: Any brand of used hair aerosol packaging, including:
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 strict shipping requirements for aerosols.
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.
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!
