Walmart and P&G Partner with TerraCycle to launch recycling program

Walmart and P&G, in partnership with international recycling leader TerraCycle, are offering free in-store recycling collection for empty hair care, skincare & cosmetic packaging at 25 Walmart locations throughout communities in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Oklahoma and Arkansas. - BeautyPackaging

The recycling program aims to help the planet and local communities by reducing waste and keeping otherwise non-recyclable plastic packaging out of landfills. Consumers are invited to bring empty hair care, skincare & cosmetic packaging to participating Walmart locations to be recycled, such as:

Once collected, beauty and skincare product packaging is cleaned and separated by material type. The materials are recycled into raw formats that manufacturers use to make new products.

Walmart and P&G are working together to strengthen recycling solutions and educate their communities about the importance of sustainability by offering convenient in-store drop-off points for haircare, skincare and cosmetic packaging. The innovative collaboration offers consumers the opportunity to divert traditionally non-recyclable beauty waste from landfills in a convenient way.
