Weleda Recycling Program

We are delighted to introduce a recycling program at Weleda. We have partnered with TerraCycle to bring you a program we hope you'll love and it's very easy and free of charge for you to use. Send back any Weleda packaging that is hard to recycle in your kerbside collection and we will collate them and get them to TerraCycle to be recycled into park benches or playground equipment.

What does TerraCycle do?

Started in the US in 2001, TerraCycle helps to eliminate waste by recycling the nonrecyclable. Terracycle can collect, and recycle, almost any form of waste – from coffee pods to chip bags, Terracycle makes new products out of waste. 

What do I need to do?

Step 1:

Keep your Weleda box (or another box) and start filling it up with empty tubes, lids, pumps and containers of Weleda products. If your local council has a recycling program recycle what you can there; use us for things that can't be recycled in your collection. Make sure your containers are clean and free of any residual product or water. We only want to recycle the packaging, not any left-over products.

Step 2:

Get a free Shipping Label by contacting us via email weleda@weleda.com.au, subject: RECYCLING – Shipping label. Please provide the box size and weight of the parcel you want to send. We will pay for the postage and create a free shipping label for you and send it to you via email.

Step 3:

Print the shipping label and attach to your box and take the parcel to your post office. We will handle everything from here.

FAQs

Q. What can I send?

A. If it is a Weleda Product you can send the packaging back to us. But if your council has a recycling program please recycle what you can in that program first and only send us what can't be recycled there.
 

Q. Can I send you product packaging that I haven't bought from you?

A. Sorry, at this point we can't recycle other products than Weleda packaging.
 

Q. How should I send it?

A. Pack it all in your Weleda box, or any other boxes you have handy. We kindly ask you to collect as much empty Weleda packaging as possible and not send in single products. Remember to make sure your tubes and bottles are free of residual product and clean.
 

Q. Any tips on cleaning the tubes?

A. We need the tubes and bottles squeaky clean so an easy way to clean them is to cut them in two. Cut the tubes, throw them in a bucket and put the bucket in the shower with you; that way you're reusing water to clean them rather than fresh tap water. 
 

Q. Do I have to pay delivery?

A. No we will cover the cost for the delivery, see our instructions above.
 

Q. Can I drop off my box to you?

A. Absolutely, we'd love to say hello. Feel free to grab all your friends' Weleda recycling and drop it off at our warehouse, Monday to Friday from 10am – 4pm at Weleda Australia Pty Ltd, Unit 16 / 2 Daydream Street Warriewood NSW 2102.
