Join this programme to be listed as a Community Collection Hub and open to the public in your area.
TerraCycle and Schwarzkopf have partnered to create a recycling programme for any brand of used hair care & colour packaging! Sign up as a Community Collection Hub to be featured on the TerraCycle map so individuals in your community can find your location to drop off their waste. Read more about becoming a Hub below.

Entrants can gain multiple entries by joining multiple Schwarzkopf Cares Recycling Programmes, a user may only join each programme once. A winner will be chosen by random draw. The winning entrant must share their address and contact number with TerraCycle and Schwarzkopf in order to receive their prize. The prize will be delivered to the winner within a reasonable timeframe after the draw, pending COVID restrictions and associated delays.
This programme has strict shipping guidelines due to the transportation of hair dye. Please read through this check list before shipping your waste.
The Community Collection Hub network is a network of locations around New Zealand where members of the community can take their 'non-recyclable' waste to be recycled with TerraCycle.
Becoming a Hub is the most sustainable way to collect TerraCycle waste. Bigger shipments mean less environmental impact, while earning more donations for the charity or school of your choice. Here's how it works:
Programme accepted waste: Any brand of used hair care & colour packaging, including:
Please note: If you are also a Community Collection Hub for hair aerosol packaging we reccomend setting up separate collection boxes for each type of waste. Each waste stream needs to be packed in a separate box with a shipping label from the correct recycling programme due to strict shipping requirememts for aerosols.
Once collected, the hair care & colour packaging is broken down and separated by material. Plastics are cleaned and pelletised to be recycled into new products, and metal materials are sent for smelting and conversion to new alloys. Click here for more information about our recycling process.
For each kilogram of used hair care & colour packaging that you send to TerraCycle, you will receive $1 in TerraCycle Points, which can be redeemed for a payment to the non-profit organisation or school of your choice.
There is no minimum shipment weight required to earn points, although we encourage hubs to collect a few months of waste with their community before sending in a parcel!
All shipments recieved this September and October will earn triple TerraCycle points! That means you can do three times the good for the school or charity of your choice.
