Woolworths Bricks Recycling Program

Recycle your Woolworths Bricks through this program.

Give your Woolworths Bricks a second life

Woolworths Bricks are designed to encourage open-ended building and play for Australian families. Certified by GECA (Good Environmental Choice Australia), they have been made from at least 80% recycled materials, including refrigerators, goggles, and luggage handles, and are also compatible with other brands.

TerraCycle, in partnership with Woolworths, is pleased to be able to offer a recycling solution for any pre-loved or unwanted Woolworths Bricks. 

If for any reason, you no longer want to keep your Woolworths Bricks, you can now drop them off at your local Woolworths for recycling.

How it works

Woolworths has established a partnership with TerraCycle to recycle any pre-loved or unwanted Woolworths Bricks that are returned to a Woolworths Supermarket or Woolworths Metro by 1 February, 2022.

If, for any reason, you no longer want to keep your Woolworths Bricks, you can simply drop your Woolworths Bricks back to the TerraCycle dedicated bin at your local Woolworths store, and Woolworths will send it to TerraCycle to recycle on your behalf.

What happens to the waste

Once collected, the Woolworths Bricks are shredded, cleaned and melted into plastic pellets that can be remoulded to make new recycled products such as garden beds, decks, fences and benches.
