Following the introduction of its Dental Care Recycling Programme, Philips launches a new at home initiative

From now until the 30th of April, Philips and TerraCycle’s Dental Care Recycling Programme encourages patients to take charge of their own dental waste in order to help keep their community safe. Patients can head to the Philips online shop (https://www.philips.co.uk/shop/UK), complete the label request form, and TerraCycle will send them a free shipping label. Once they’ve safely packaged up their waste, they can arrange for UPS to come and pick up their package from their home address and take them to be recycled. As an encouragement to participate Philips is offering patients 10% off Philips Sonicare brush heads.

Items that can be recycled include: electric toothbrush heads and covers, electric flosser nozzles, flossing sticks, interdental brushes, and dental floss containers, from all brands. All waste collected as part of this programme will be shipped to the TerraCycle material recovery facility where it will be sorted and stored, ready to be recycled into new products.
