Join this program to collect at home and recycle as a private location or an individual.
TerraCycle and Schwarzkopf have partnered to create a recycling program for any brand of used hair aerosol packaging!
Looking to recycle 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.
Earn triple TerraCycle points for any shipments sent between 9 September - 22 October, so you can do even more good for your community!
To ship back your Aerosols to be recycled please follow the steps in the "How it works" section below.
If you are dropping off to a Community Collection Hub please ensure your aerosols are completely empty (when you hold down the nozzle no more product comes out) and have their caps on.
COLLECT AS A PRIVATE LOCATION
If you are unable to become a Community Collection Hub and be listed on our map as a public location, you can still send us your used hair aerosol packaging as a private location! You can collect on your own or with your friends & family, school or workplace. This option enables you to collect with a group of people without being listed on our Community Collection Hub map.
To sign up as a private collector please follow these steps:
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 collectors to collect a few months of waste with your friends and family before sending in a parcel!
All shipments recieved this September and October will earn triple TerraCycle points! That means you can do three times the good for the school or charity of your choice.
