Join this programme to collect at home and recycle as a private location or an individual.
Sending back your waste for this programme is a little different to our usual process. When you are ready to recycle your waste please follow the steps below.
This programme has strict shipping guidelines due to the transportation of aerosols. Please read through this check list before shipping your waste.
This program accepts any brand of hair aerosols - including but not limited to Schwarzkopf.
Hair Care & Colour packaging are not accepted through this recycling programme but you can recycle them through the Schwarzkopf Cares Hair Care & Colour Recycling Programme. You can see more about the programme and sign up here. If you are collecting for both programmes please ensure you ship in your waste in separate boxes with a shipping label for the correct programme attached.
Yes, please ensure your aerosols are completely empty and have their caps on before sending them in to be recycled.
In the Schwarzkopf Cares Hair Aerosol Recycling Programme you can earn $1 worth of TerraCycle points for every 1kg of packaging you send in.
Some recycling programs have shipment size requirements to earn TerraCycle points, but you do not have to meet these requirements if you do not wish to receive TerraCycle points. All shipment sizes may be shipped completely for free and your waste will still be recycled, you simply won’t earn the point donation.
The Schwarzkopf Cares Hair Care & Colour Recycling Programme does not have a minimum shipment weight to earn TerraCycle points.
There is a minimum of 1,000 points or $10 needed to redeem for a monetary donation. You can redeem your points at any time for a monetary donation to any non-profit, school, or charitable organisation of your choice.
