Have you ever wondered what happens to your empty tooth paste tube? Or perhaps where your old tooth brush ends up? Have you ever been concerned that they all go straight to landfill?

Worry no more!

Fresh Dental Care are collecting this waste as part of the Oral Care Recycling Program sponsored by Colgate and TerraCycle, an innovative recycling company that has become a global leader in recycling hard-to-recycle waste.

We are a drop off point for floss containers, old tooth brushes, tooth paste tubes and outer packaging, which we then send to TerraCycle where they’re shredded and melted into hard plastic, to be made into other useable products.

“We’re really inspired by the commitment of Australian businesses to recycling, and by their hard work in raising awareness about waste and sustainability,” Jean Bailliard, General Manager of TerraCycle Australia & New Zealand said.

Help Fresh Dental Care in our green efforts to decrease the local landfill waste, by dropping off all your unwanted oral care products today!

Drop off points near you:

Macksville – 1 Princess Street, Urunga – 46 Bonville Street, Coffs Harbour – 1/252 Harbour Drive
