How it works

Participating is completely free and very easy.

What you can recycle

Program accepted waste: Herbal Essences shampoo and conditioner bottles and caps, hair mist bottles and pumps, flexible plastic tubes and closures, and color and hair treatment packets.

Please note this program does not accept aerosol containers, as aerosol containers require special handling and are accepted by some municipal programs. Please take them to a recycling center that is equipped to handle aerosol containers.

NOTE: Please check for local recycling solutions for #1 and #2 plastics. If no recycling solution exists in your area, you can include this packaging in your shipments through this program.

Best practices for recycling

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.

What happens to your recyclables

Once collected, the waste is broken down and separated by material. Plastics are cleaned and pelletized and metals are melted down. Click here to learn more about TerraCycle's recycling process.


TerraCycle points can be redeemed for a variety of charitable gifts, product bundles, or a payment of $0.01 per point to the non-profit organization or school of your choice. To learn more about our points program, click here.
