Dental Collection Hub

Dental Collection Hub

Recycle your dental products the right way with HCi!

Open NOW in Burnie!

Did you know most recyclable dental products aren’t accepted by regular, kerb side recycling programs? When you think about how essential dental care is to everyone’s daily routine and the amount of different products people use, it adds up to a lot of plastic that has nowhere to go but into landfill.

We’re doing our bit to help with our new Dental Collection Hub located at the HCi Burnie office (see map). We’ll collect your unwanted/used dental products and make sure they are responsibly recycled and reused!

It’s easy – drop & go!

Pop into the HCi office in Burnie during open hours and drop off your unwanted/used dental products into our collection box.

The types of products we accept are:

  • Toothpaste tubes and caps
  • Toothbrush/toothpaste plastic packaging
  • Manual toothbrushes
  • Electric toothbrush heads
  • Floss containers

And while you’re here, why not talk to us about our Healthy Extras for dental cover to keep you smiling!

What happens to my products?

We’ll send your dental waste off to Terracycle, a national recycling provider, who’ll make sure it’s responsibly recycled and reused.

Terracycle works with many companies to repurpose dental waste for products like…

  • Playgrounds
  • Park Benches
  • Flower beds
