The Spotlight Oral Care Aligners Recycling Programme - FAQ

Recycle all brands of dental aligners, plus the flexible plastic packaging and cases through this programme.

Anyone can participate in the programme by dropping off their dental aligners, flexible plastic packaging and cases in a collection box at one of the participating dental offices across the UK. A list of all participating locations is available through our interactive map that you can access on the programme page.

You can download the Accepted Waste Poster here.

Once collected, the dental aligners, flexible plastic packaging and cases are cleaned and melted into hard plastic that can be remolded to make new recycled products. Click here to learn more about the recycling process.

We are sorry that there are no TerraCycle® points awarded in this programme. All public drop-off locations are placed in participating UK dental offices and managed by Spotlight Oral Care and TerraCycle® internally. You can drop off your collected dental aligners, flexible plastic packaging and cases for free at one of the participating dental offices, but unfortunately we won't be able to award any TerraCycle® points.
