Toothbrush Recycling

Monday, September 09, 2019 : Catherine-Anne Walsh

Guess what time it is?!


Perhaps time to change the head on that electric toothbrush? Can you remember the last time you changed it?

Then there is no time like today!

What to do with that old head? In an age of everything being recycled, upcycled, re-used and composted, I might feel a bit wasteful popping that brush head into the bin.

But fear not! In addition to being able to recycle toothpaste tubes, toothbrushes and floss packs here at the Dentist—you can now bring us the old electric toothbrush heads, too!

Seriously—this has made my Monday!

Our recycling partner, Terracycle, has just let us know that they are now accepting electric toothbrush heads for recycling and will soon be accepting the bases and chargers as well!

So, stay tuned recyclers! More to follow…….
