According to the US Environmental Protection Agency, approximately 30% of municipal waste consists of packaging and containers. We want to close the loop on our packaging and, with your help, ensure it doesn’t end up in landfills or oceans.
Is your packaging or container recyclable curbside?
• Check each piece of packaging for the recycling symbol.
• If you see the recycling symbol, confirm that your local recycling service accepts this type of packaging—visit BeRecycled.org to quickly find this information.
• General rules of thumb:
o Remove all excess product before recycling
o If the product contains a pump, remove and discard it before recycling
o Recycle plastic bottles and glass jars with their lids on
If curbside recycling isn’t available for one of your Burt’s Bees packages, then use our free mail-back program via TerraCycle (currently only offered in the United States).
