HOW IT HELPS THE PLANET
Recycle Me was created to help customers to reduce the amount of hard-to recycle plastic beauty products ending up in landfill.
Many beauty products are make up of complex plastic materials that can't be recycled via your usual, local kerbside collections.
The Recycle Me scheme takes any plastic beauty packaging, no matter what the brand, and we will recycle it into something new, reducing waste and preventing plastic pollution which can be harmful to wildlife and the environment.
WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?
You can recycle most plastic beauty products listed in the above requirements, but no general waste, including food and beverage packaging.
No, you can recycle products from any beauty brand, even if you didn’t purchase them with us.
Beauty packaging cannot be recycled at home as most local authorities don’t have the correct equipment to recycle the packaging; this is because of the complex materials used.
Traditional plastic can take hundreds of years to break down naturally, so recycling your plastic beauty products via Recycle Me means the materials can be used again and again instead of being wasted.
The plastic materials are sorted, shredded and melted down into strong and durable plastic boards, which are used to create something new and useful for our community partners.
