Market Place Dental is proud to be Great Dunmow's public drop off point in the Colgate® Oral Care Recycling Programme for products and packaging.

Every year countless pieces of oral care products and packaging end up in landfill sites across the UK. Colgate® are working with TerraCycle® to put an end to this enormous loss of resources. The Colgate® Oral Care Recycling Programme recycles oral care products and packaging and prevents them from ending up in landfill.

Once collected, the oral care products and packaging are separated by polymer type, cleaned, and extruded into plastic pellets to make new recycled products. Not only is this helping the environment, but the waste recycled with us also helps to fund our nominated oral health charities.

You do not need to be a patient to access this service.

Accepted waste - any brand of:

  • Plastic toothbrushes and outer packaging
  • Toothpaste tubes and caps (squeeze as much toothpaste from the tube as possible) and cartons
  • Electric and battery toothbrush heads and outer packaging
  • Floss containers and packaging
