How it works

Participating is simple and free, but all participants must adhere to strict shipping requirements for this particular program.

  • Aerosols must be shipped through the Febreze Aerosol Recycling Program; labels from other TerraCycle programs must not be used to ship these items.
  • Aerosols must be in their own box; do not include other products or packaging.
  • Individual aerosol containers cannot exceed one (1) liter in volume.
  • Aerosol containers must be empty and have lids, tops, or caps attached when shipped. Aerosols without lids will not be accepted.
  • Aerosols must be shipped in strong, preferably double-walled cardboard boxes. Boxes must be in good condition.
  • Maximum weight of a single filled box = 15 pounds
  • Maximum box volume of a shipping box = 24 inches x 24 inches x 18 inches
  • Boxes containing aerosols must have a “Limited quantity marking” sticker included on the exterior of the shipping box along with the shipping label. This label may be found in the "Resources" section below.

Best practices for recycling

You don’t need to clean the packaging before sending it to TerraCycle, but please remove as much of the remaining product as possible. UPS will not accept dripping packages, so make sure your items are dry.

What happens to your recyclables

Once collected, the empty aerosol containers are cleaned, separated, and melted into hard plastic and metals that can be remolded to make new recycled products. Click here to learn more about the recycling process.


Shipments in this program must be at least 2 pounds to earn points, and 100 points per pound for qualifying shipments will be awarded.

TerraCycle points can be redeemed for a variety of charitable gifts or a payment of $0.01 per point to the non-profit organization or school of your choice. Each empty aerosol container you send in will earn you about 5 TerraCycle points and will be counted based on an average unit weight of 0.05 pounds.
