Have you recycled your DISPOSABLE RAZORS through us yet?
The program accepted waste: Any brand of used razor blades and their packaging, including:
🪒 All brands of blades and razors (refillable and disposable products, and replaceable-blade cartridge units)
🪒 Rigid plastic packaging
🪒 Flexible plastic packaging
Please note: cardboard and paper packaging is recyclable through regular yellow top kerbside recycling. Please do not include these in your collections for this program.
Once collected what happens to it?
The razor blades and their packaging are broken down and separated by the material through Terracycle. Plastics are cleaned and pelletised to be recycled into new products, and metal materials are sent for smelting and conversion to new alloys.
Want a better option?
Instead of disposable why don’t you check out our Reusable Razors in-store or online.
Another option is to buy an electric razor or epilator for your hair removal needs as these can be reused for many years before being recycled as e-waste.
