There is an enormous amount of plastic waste entering landfills each year, however, thanks to progressive brands like Gillette and TerraCycle, razors can now be recycled infinitely. Gillette and TerraCycle are working together to launch a national recycling initiative for all brands of disposable razors, packaging, and replaceable-blade cartridges in Canada. All materials collected from the recycling initiatives will be upcycled into recycling bins, park benches, bike, racks, and more.
To participate in the Razor Recycling Program, consumers can sign up for the program online, then once they've accumulated enough razors to recycle, they can download a free TerraCycle shipping label and package their razors in a puncture-proof package to send to TerraCycle for recycling. For larger institutes like businesses, gyms, colleges, and community organizations, Gillette and TerraCycle have launched public drop-off points called the Gillette Razor Local Recycling Solution.
