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 care & colour packaging! 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.

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:

Please note: If you are also a Community Collection Hub for hair aerosol packaging we recommend setting up separate collection boxes for each type of waste. Each waste stream needs to be packed in a separate box with a shipping label from the correct recycling program due to strict shipping requirements for aerosols.
Once collected, the hair care & colour 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 care & colour 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!
