Update – Dental Care Recycling Programmes

Dental Care Recycling Schemes

Sadly, Colgate have discontinued their Oral Care Recycling Programme, so we can no longer accept toothpaste tubes, pumps, caps and outer packaging. However, the good news is, Philips have launched a similar scheme, called ‘The Philips Dental Care Recycling Programme’, so we can carry on collecting toothbrushes, electric toothbrush heads, flosser heads and floss containers. In addition to this, the Philips scheme also allows us to collect interdental brushes, like Tepe brushes. Please check the new poster for changes of what we can / can’t accept.

Thank you to everyone who has dropped off their dental recycling to date. Every item brought in for recycling, means less plastic waste in landfill, so let’s keep up the good work!
