Minimise your contributions to landfill waste

TerraCycle is eliminating the idea of waste by recycling the non-recyclable. They offer free recycling programs funded by brands, manufacturers, and retailers around the world to help you collect and recycle your hard-to-recycle waste. To date, over 63 million people are collecting items in 20 countries and have collected billions of pieces of waste, raising $15 million for charities around the world!

Katanning Landcare has just signed up to become a public drop-off location for two of TerraCycle’s recycling programs! You can now recycle any brand of numerous oral care and beauty products simply by dropping them off in the collection boxes located in the Katanning Landcare office!

Once the collection boxes are full, we will send them to TerraCycle who will reuse, upcycle, or recycle all of the items collected. This moves waste from a linear system to a circular one, allowing it to keep cycling in our economy.

For each package we send to TerraCycle, we gain 2 points for each item of waste in that package. These points can then be redeemed for a cash payment to Katanning Landcare. So, not only will you be helping to save the environment by recycling items that would normally end up in landfill, you will also be supporting Katanning Landcare’s efforts to raise some very much needed funds! The funds raised from these programs will go straight back into Katanning Landcare’s on ground projects, such as improving native habitat for Red Tailed Phascogales and running great events, like Katanning EcoWeek.

The team at Katanning Landcare look forward to working with you to help minimise landfill waste.
