Give your Ooshies™ a second life

The Lion King Ooshies™ are built to be durable, as they are a treasured Disney collectors’ item. TerraCycle, in partnership with Woolworths, is pleased to be able to offer a recycling solution for any pre-loved or unwanted Lion King Ooshies™. 

If for any reason, you no longer want to keep your Lion King Ooshie, 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 Lion King OoshiesTM that are returned to a Woolworths Supermarket or Woolworths Metro by 31/10/2019.

If, for any reason, you no longer want to keep your Lion King Ooshie, you can simply drop your Ooshie back to the Service Desk 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 Ooshies™ 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.
