Oral Care Recycling Program

Recycle your oral care product packaging at New Horizons Dental

At New Horizons Dental, we have joined up with TerraCycle and Colgate® becoming actively involved in recycling. Plastic pollution is a concern for everyone and we are more determined and more focused on recycling to help save the planet.

What happens to the waste?

Once collected, the tubes and brushes are separated by composition, shredded and melted into hard plastic that can be remoulded to make new recycled products.

Drop-off location

New Horizons Dental reception is the nearest drop-off location for Port Douglas, giving the community and patients the opportunity to drop off their waste for recycling more conveniently.

For more information, please visit our dental reception or speak with a member of our team for any enquiries and they will be happy to help.
