Public Green Category: Reduce Your Waste Line

Start Saving Your Personal Care Product Packaging

Starting April 20 Mount Prospect Public Library will be collecting hair care, skin care, and cosmetic product packaging to be recycled through TerraCycle.

TerraCycle is “an international upcycling and recycling company that collects difficult-to-recycle packaging and products and repurposes the material into affordable, innovative products…TerraCycle works with more than 100 major brands in the U.S. and 22 countries overseas to collect used packaging and products that would otherwise be destined for landfills. ”

A designated box will be located in the inner lobby of the Library to collect acceptable packaging.
