We accept any hard-to-recycle plastic, metal and soda-lime glass beauty packaging:
Some of the accepted waste may be recycled kerbside. For these types of waste, we encourage you to opt for local council collection as you'll have more room for products and/or packaging that can't be.

Each Zero Waste Bag is opened upon receipt and visually inspected for any non-compliant materials, then consolidated for processing in bulk.
The materials are size-reduced through shredding. Metals are removed through magnetized and electrostatic sortation. Sorted metals are then smelted and formed for use in secondary metals manufacturing. Glass is removed by density through vibratory screening and used in aggregate-based products such as construction block and tile.
The remaining plastics are size-reduced through shredding and cleaned in temperature-regulated water baths with agitation and surfactants to remove residual product or other contaminants. The clean plastics are then sorted by density profile and composition through multi-stage air, optical, and water-based mechanical sortation systems. Clean, sorted plastics are mixed with other plastics to make recycled plastic blends that are then used by various manufacturers to make new products.
