The L’Occitane® Recycling Programme - FAQ

Recycle your beauty and skin care packaging

Anyone can participate in the programme by dropping off their L'OCCITANE EN PROVENCE® packaging in a collection box at one of the participating stores. The list of participating stores is on our interactive map that you can access on the programme page.

Due to logistical reasons, at this time we cannot operate the free recycling programmes in the Isle of Man or Channel Islands. The TerraCycle® Operations Team are looking into different logistical solutions to start the free recycling programmes in these locations and we are hoping to have a solution soon. We apologise for any inconvenience.

The following types of beauty and skin care packaging are accepted in the programme: 

  • Aluminium packaging
  • Travel Size Packaging
  • Caps and Closures
  • Refill Pouches
  • Flexible Plastic Tubes
  • Rigid Plastic Tubes

Please note that the following types of beauty and skin care packaging are not accepted in the programme:

  • Aerosols
  • Glass Bottles
  • Glass Tubes
  • Glass Moisturiser Jars

For more information, please consult our Accepted Waste Poster.

You will not need to send your beauty and skin care packaging to TerraCycle®​ yourself.

instead, simply find your closest participating L'Occitane en Provence® store and drop-off your used beauty and skin care products in the relevant collection box during your next visit. The L'Occitane en Provence® store will then send the packaging to TerraCycle®.

Once received by TerraCycle®, your beauty and skin care packaging is sorted and separated by material composition. The separated items are then cleaned, shredded, and made into new recycled products. Click here to learn more about the recycling process.

You can drop off your packaging anytime a participating store is open. You can check the opening hours of the stores on our interactive map.
