Recycling in the bathroom, does that sound weird? Maybe you already recycle the plastic bottles and caps (plastic #1 & #2) from shampoo, conditioners, body lotion, body wash, skin care, baby powder, etc) but what about:
Did you know that the plastic pumps in bottles (e.g. lotion) are not yet recyclable. When you finish the bottle, discard (or reuse) the pump, and recycle the bottle.
Typically we think these items are also non-recyclable:
TerraCycle offers recycling programs for lots of hard to recycle items like
One of the many Terracycle Brigades is for traditional oral care products. After you use the oral care container, simply drop it into your designated box (or bag) with any other items you collect like toothbrushes, toothpaste tubes and other bathroom leftovers. Once the bag is full you mail it back to Terracycle for recycling. You earn two points for each item mailed back. Those points can be redeemed for cash donations to the school or charity of your choice.
TerraCycle offers free recycling programs funded by brands, manufacturers, and retailers around the world to help you collect and recycle your hard-to-recycle waste. Simply choose the programs you’d like to join; start collecting in your home, school, or office; download free shipping labels; and send us your waste to be recycled. You can even earn rewards for your school or favorite non-profit!
