Colgate® Oral Care Recycling Program accepted waste:
No, your shipment can be any size. To earn the TerraCycle point donation, however, your shipment must weigh over 5 lbs. Remember, the shipment size requirement is applicable only if you would like to earn TerraCycle points.
No, you do not need to clean the waste before sending it in to TerraCycle. However, please remove as much of the remaining product as possible before shipping. And please remember, UPS will not accept dripping packages, so make sure your waste is dry prior to shipping.
To earn TerraCycle points, your shipments must weigh at least 5 lbs. If your shipment meets or exceeds the shipment size requirement, each piece of waste your location sends in will earn you about 2 TerraCycle points. Oral care packaging will be counted based on an average unit weight of 0.02 lbs.
