Participants earn two points for each piece of air and home care waste sent to TerraCycle for recycling, during the contest period. This year’s contest is the biggest in TerraCycle Canada's history, with $8,650 of charity donations being shared among the top ten winners.
The contest is part of TerraCycle and Febreze’s innovative collection-and-recycling program, called, the Air and Home Care Recycling Program, a free, national program, operated by Febreze and TerraCycle, which enables any brand of air-freshener cartridge or home-cleaning packaging to be recycled. Anyone in Canada can sign up, and all are welcome to participate in the contest.
The Air and Home Care Recycling Program recently hit a nationwide milestone of nearly 150,000 units recycled and over $13,000 dollars raised for charity. The program is an ongoing activity, open to any individual, family, school or community group. For each piece of waste sent in using a pre-paid shipping label, participants earn points which can be translated into cash donations to the school or charity of their choice.
