Can I recycle at the EverGREEN Refill Station?
Yes, our partner, Aspire, hosts a number of Terracycle boxes to help recycle disposable razors blades, toothpaste tubes, toothbrushes, dental floss containers, pens & markers. Bring them in and we’ll get them to Aspire for recycling.
What types of containers can I use?
Any and all containers will work. Plastic, laundry and dish soap containers, mason jars, jelly jars, glass or plastic bottles work well too. We’ll even provide you with a new label.
Why is it important to refill your containers?
Each year Americans contribute enormous amounts of single-use plastics into the waste stream. Only 9% are ultimately recycled. The rest end up in our landfills, our oceans and frequently transported long distances to developing countries. Often the plastics are incinerated releasing toxic fumes into the environment. Plastics are made from fossil fuels and are thought to contribute 4.5% to planet warming greenhouse gases throughout their lifecycle. This is more than all the world’s airplanes combined.
