Oral Care Waste and Packaging Zero Waste Box™
The Zero Waste Box program allows you to recycle almost any type of waste. Simply follows the steps below to recycle your waste with us and make a positive impact on our planet.
The collected waste is mechanically and hand separated into fibers (like wood and coated paper), plastics and other materials. The resulting fibers will be hydropulped to separate out coatings (like wax and plastics). The separated fiber will be recycled into new paper products, or composted if recycling is not possible. The resulting plastics will be recycled into plastic polymers. Flexible and rigid plastics undergo extrusion and pelletization to be molded into various recycled plastic products.
Please send us any brand toothpaste tubes and caps, toothbrushes, toothbrush and toothpaste tube outer packaging and floss containers.
include organics, broken glass, bio-medical waste, soiled diapers, expired medication, pesticides, paint, pressurized canisters, and medical sharps in any of our boxes. Please send traditional recyclables through your municipal system.
