Please note: This program will have important shipping requirements so please keep your aerosols separate to other programs. More details to come.

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.


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:

  1. Join the program by clicking the button at the top of this page.

  2. When you've collected a couple of months' worth of packaging and are ready to ship your waste to us, head to your profile to download a free shipping label for this program.

  3. Affix your shipping label to your package and bring it to your closest Australia Post.

Want to become a Community Collection Hub?

Be featured on the TerraCycle map so individuals in your community can find your location to drop off their waste. Head here to join as a Community Collection Hub.

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 collectors to collect a few months of waste with your friends and family before sending in a parcel!
