Recycle Gold Bond® with TerraCycle®
Our Commitment to Sustainability
At Gold Bond®, we’re doing everything we can to take better care of the environment. So we partnered with TerraCycle® to create a free nationwide recycling program for all of our packaging, including our aerosol cans.
Our Partnership with TerraCycle
TerraCycle’s mission is to Eliminate the Idea of Waste®. TerraCycle accepts items that are typically hard to recycle. We created this partnership to provide an easy and free way for you to recycle old product containers.
How it works
When your product runs out, collect your empty bottles, tubes, pumps, boxes, and tubs in a sturdy box suitable for shipping. For more information about shipping, please see TerraCycle.com
When your box is full, use your TerraCycle account to print the FREE shipping label and ship via UPS.
TerraCycle will recycle your old containers and use them to make picnic tables, park benches, and more.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
You can recycle all empty Gold Bond® packaging, including bottles, tubes, tubs, pumps, and boxes. Containers don’t need to be rinsed or cleaned, but please try to remove as much product as possible.
You do not need to clean or rinse the containers before sending to TerraCycle, but please try to remove as much remaining product as possible to ensure your items are dry. TerraCycle also encourages you to ship your box when it is full of items to minimize the transportation carbon footprint.
TIP: Collect empties from friends and family who also use our products, then ship them back in the same box. It’s another way to minimize the carbon footprint.
Nope. We cover the cost of shipping, and TerraCycle takes care of the rest. Just use the free shipping label provided in your TerraCycle account.
Once collected, the containers are cleaned and melted into hard plastic. This plastic can then be remolded to make new recycled products, such as park benches and picnic tables.
