Recycle your disposable gloves through this scheme
TerraCycle® and Spontex® have partnered to create a free recycling scheme to make your disposable gloves recyclable nationwide. The scheme also offers participants the opportunity to fundraise for their favourite school or charity. Sign up now to join the scheme as a public drop-off location, or find your nearest drop-off point here. If you don’t have one nearby, why not set one up today?
We do not provide collection boxes for private collectors or public drop-off locations for this scheme. However, you can reuse any clean and sturdy cardboard box, to collect and send us your waste.
There are 2 different ways to participate in this programme:
Find your nearest public drop-off location on the interactive map above and drop off your gloves.

Once collected, your disposable gloves are cleaned and ground down into a fine powder to make new recycled products. Click here to learn more about the recycling process.
This programme offers 50 TerraCycle® points for each kilogram of disposable gloves sent. However, the points will only be awarded if the parcel reaches the minimum weight of 8 kilograms.
5 kilograms = 0 TerraCycle® points
8 kilograms = 400 TerraCycle® points
9.5 kilograms = 475 TerraCycle® points
Please note that TerraCycle® points are credited to the accounts of public drop-off location administrators and private collectors as a reward for their collection efforts. The number of points given is determined by the weight of the parcel. 1 TerraCycle® point is worth 1 penny.
Once credited, the points can be redeemed into financial donations to the charity or school chosen by the owner of the points. The points must be redeemed on the TerraCycle® website.
As a leading European cleaning tools brand, we believe that we can no longer design a great product unless we take into account its environmental footprint and constantly strive to reduce its environmental impact year after year. When we launch disposable products to meet consumer needs, we believe that we must give these products a second life and find them a new purpose. Through our partnership with TerraCycle®, we’re taking responsibility and committing to identifying new innovative solutions. Join us in our mission to keep disposable gloves out of landfill.
