Please continue to bring in your old toothbrushes, empty toothpaste tubes, floss containers and all outer packaging. This is a free program sponsored by Colgate, but all brands are accepted. Please remove as much of the product as possible. NOTE: electric toothbrushes, battery toothbrushes and/or their parts are not accepted for recycling through this program.
Once collected, products are sent to TerraCycle where they are cleaned and melted into hard plastic pellets that can then be remolded to make new recycled products, such as outdoor furniture, playground equipment or other items.
Every year billions of pounds of oral care waste are sent to land fills. Help reduce our carbon footprint. We are caretakers of God’s Glorious Creation!
We have learned that TerraCycle, the company that recycles our oral care waste, now has items made from recycled material are available for purchase. Website: https://shop.terracycle.com/en-US/products.
