In collaboration with Procter & Gamble and TerraCycle, Walmart is allowing customers in four states to recycle beauty product packaging in certain stores.
The Walmart US Beauty Recycling Program is rolling out at 25 stores in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Oklahoma and Arkansas for empty hair care, skincare and cosmetic packaging. Walmart and P&G have sponsored the program, so it is free for customers.
“Walmart and P&G are working together to strengthen recycling solutions and educate their communities about the importance of sustainability by offering convenient in-store drop-off points for haircare, skincare and cosmetic packaging,” Tom Szaky, TerraCycle CEO, said in a press release. “The innovative collaboration offers consumers the opportunity to divert traditionally non-recyclable beauty waste from landfills in a convenient way.”Resource-Recycling
