Wholesome Hub and our brands First Ray and Refillr, have teamed up with TerraCycle® to provide a second life for used personal care and beauty packaging, toothbrushes, toothpaste tubes, dental floss containers, dish liquid packaging and air fresheners and mailing satchels through TerraCycle's FREE Beauty Products, Oral Care and Dish and Air Care Recycling and Mailing Satchels Programs .
You can now recycle a bunch of products you use at home every day, easily and completely free.
All you need to do is collect your used personal care, beauty product packaging, toothbrushes, toothpaste tubes, dish liquid packaging, air fresheners and plastic mailing satchels and come by our office and warehouse and drop them into the allocated box. Here are our details:

Recycling Best Practices:
You don't need to wash your packaging, however all excess product should be removed. We unfortunately can't accept the cardboard packaging as part of this program as this is typically accepted in your council recyling bin.
To learn more about what you can and can't recycle at home and as part of your kerbside recycling program, you can read our blog all about recycling at home.
