Market Place Dental's reception includes a recycling collection hub as we are now the public drop off location for two recycling schemes;

Philips Dental Care Recycling Programme 

Through this programme we are collecting:

  • Electric toothbrush heads and covers 
  • Flossing sticks and interdental brushes 
  • Electric flosser nozzles

Colgate® and hello® Oral Care Recycling Programme

Through this programme we are collecting:

  • Plastic toothbrushes
  • Plastic toothbrush heads
  • Plastic toothbrush outer packaging
  • Toothpaste cartons
  • Toothpaste tubes and caps
  • Electric and battery toothbrush heads
  • Floss containers and outer packaging
  • Mouthwash bottles and caps from the brand hello®

You do not need to be a patient to drop off your items for recycling.

Once collected, the oral care products and packaging are sent to Terracycle® where they are separated by polymer type, cleaned, and extruded into plastic pellets to make new recycled products. Find out more about the process.

Through the collection, funds are allocated by Terracycle® to support the charity of our choice. Through these schemes, Market Place Dental supports the work of Mercy Ships.
