Live Life Green & Terracycle Recycling Program

Earn store credit by recycling your beauty packaging & oral care products!

Who is Terracycle?

terracycle

Terracycle is an innovative company that specialising in recycling things that can't be recycled through your household bin. They've found recycling solutions for almost every form of waste. Plastic waste that's collected is turned into plastic pellets that are then moulded into a variety of new products like benches, picnic tables and playgrounds. 

How does the Live Life Green/Terracycle Recycling Program work?

  1. Recycle what can be recycled through your normal household recycling. 
  2. In an old postage box, collect any eligible Terracycle items that can't be household recycled. Make sure they're empty and you rinse them out first! See here for a full list of eligible containers.
  3. Once your box is full, package it and send it to:

               Live Life Green Recycling

               C/O River Heads Pharmacy

               4/52-54 Ariadne St

               River Heads

               Qld 4655

Once we've received your box we will sort it and credit your Live Life Green $1 for each eligible item returned. When we have a full container, we'll send it to Terracycle for recycling For each unit of recyclable material that Terracycle receives for us, they donate to a cause/non-profit group of our choice. To make sure the love is shared, we change our nominated charity regularly.
