How it works

Signing up to be a local recycling solution is an easy and efficient way to collect used razors for your community. This program is designed for people who have (or who plan to have) a public drop-off location available to the public and want to spread awareness. Being a public drop-off point can increase the number of items you collect, and the TerraCycle points you can earn.

After acceptance to the program, you can request a custom razor recycling bin, developed exclusively by TerraCycle and Gillette, by filling out this form. The first batch of bins are expected to arrive by the end of October. Your patience is appreciated.

After you receive it, fill your bin with collections from your community. Once full, simply seal and return the bin via UPS and a new one will be sent back to you. The address listed with your account will be posted on the interactive public map of drop-off locations on the Gillette Razor Recycling Program page.

We want to help you turn your public drop-off point into a successful local recycling solution for your community, so we are here to provide resources and guidance through Customer Support.

If you need to update your drop-off address, please contact TerraCycle Customer Support.

If you need to order a new bin, please fill out this form.

Are there any types of locations that cannot be listed as a local recycling solution?

Businesses (including gyms), colleges, cities, and community organizations are encouraged to sign up. Local drop-off points must be accessible by the public in your community.

Individual homes, medical facilities, children’s groups, and schools other than colleges and universities do not qualify for this aspect of the program. 

If you are unsure if your organization type can be listed as a public drop-off point, you can request to join the program and we will review your account, or you can contact TerraCycle Customer Support to learn more.

All brands of blades and razors (systems and disposable units, and replaceable blade cartridge units), rigid plastic packaging, and flexible plastic bag packaging
