Best practices for recycling

Keep the cardboard On Demand delivery box and use it to mail your Gillette blades and razors to TerraCycle. We encourage you to ship when your box is full of blades and razors to minimize the transportation carbon footprint for this program. You don’t need to clean the items before sending it to TerraCycle, but please remove as much residue as possible. UPS will not accept dripping packages, so please make sure your items are dry.

What happens to your recyclables

Once collected, the blades, razors, and plastic packaging are cleaned and separated by material. Metals are smelted into ingots for reuse, and plastics are melted down and turned into pellets, flakes, and other usable formats that can be remolded to make new recycled products, such as park benches and picnic tables.
