Squeezable tubes

Toothpaste

Guidance

Squeezable plastic tubes that contain products such as toothpaste or hand cream can only be recycled if they are totally clean inside. Unless you cut them open to remove all the contents, they should go into the general waste. Alternatively, Terracycle has a number of drop-off points where toothpaste tubes, toothbrushes and packaging can be recycled. However, pump action toothpaste tubes can be recycled.
