All brands of air freshener cartridges and plugs, packaging and flexible film packaging, and trigger heads.
While we do accept trigger heads because they consist of a mix of different materials that is not covered by nationwide recycling programs, we do not accept plastic bottles, as these can be recycled through most municipal programs.
Aerosol containers require special handling when recycling and should NOT be included with the above mentioned waste. Please take them to a recycling center that is equipped to handle aerosol containers.
Can anyone participate in the program?
Just about, at this time the program is available to anyone in the 48 contiguous United States. (It’s a shipping issue, we still love all our ‘overseas’ supporters 😉
Do I need to clean the waste before I send it in?
No, you do not need to clean the waste before sending it in. However, please remove as much of the remaining product as possible before shipping. Keep in mind, UPS will not accept dripping packages, so make sure your waste is dry prior to shipping.
Do I have to ship in a certain type of box?
Any box will do, but the box weight does not count toward the recyclable weight. Check out our resources tab for a quick way to make a collection box.
Can I only collect Febreze-branded product?
Nope, for our Febreze Air Care program you can collect any brand of air care product waste (just not aerosols or regular plastic containers).
Can I mix (and mail in) products from another recycling program?
Unfortunately, no. If you’re collecting for another program, like our Performance Nutrition or Colgate® Oral Care, you’ll need to send those in separately.
We want to make your recycling efforts as easy and succesful as possible so here are a few items you may find helpful.
