The contest has ended

This contest is now over. Official winners will be contacted by TerraCycle staff to coordinate delivery of the prizes outlined below.

How it works

Playground Credits may be earned by voting and/or recycling used oral care products and packaging through the Colgate® Oral Care Recycling Program. Each vote will count as one (1) Playground Credit and each unit of used oral care products received through this program will count as one (1) Playground Credit. Note: a "unit" is defined as 0.02 lbs of used, post-consumer oral care products and packaging. The school that earns the most Playground Credits during the contest period will win the grand prize.

IF YOU HAVE NEVER RECYCLED WITH COLGATE®

To start recycling for Playground Credits, follow the steps outlined on the Colgate® Oral Care Recycling Program page. Encourage students and staff to bring in their oral care waste to school for collection. Every unit of used oral care products received between April 22 and June 30 will count as one (1) Playground Credit for that school.

IF YOU CURRENTLY RECYCLE WITH COLGATE®

Ship your used oral care products in to TerraCycle as you normally would. You will earn one (1) Playground Credit for every unit of used oral care products recycled through the Colgate® Oral Care Recycling Program. Encourage students and staff to bring in their oral care waste to school for collection. All shipments received between April 22 and June 30 will count towards the contest.

And don’t forget, you can earn additional Playground Credits by voting for your school of choice once per day at the top of this page.
