Aerosol and Haircare Product Collection Drive

I’m so excited to be able to put this collection drive together, and wanted to be able to answer a lot of your questions in one place.

  • What exactly are you collecting?
    – I’ll be collecting empty aerosol cans, as well as expired and unwanted haircare products like gels, shampoos, pastes, or pretty much anything hair-related that you tried and didn’t like but can’t return and can’t give away, or has been sitting under your sink forever just taking up space.
  • What can I recycle?
    – If you are recycling haircare products it just needs to be meant for hair/skin. I can empty most of the contents to be able to recycle the contents and containers separately through Green Circle Salons as part of my usual recycling program that I do.
    -Through Terracycle I will be able to take empty aerosol cans from air fresheners, hairspray, cleaning products, sunscreen, bug spray, deodorant, etc. My general understanding is that as long as it was in an aerosol container and not a prohibited item, I can send it to them.
  • What cannot be recycled?
    – Things like asthma inhalers, pepper sprays, refrigerants with CFC, expanding foam.
  • Where are the recycled products going?
    Terracycle and Green Circle Salons
  • What does this cost you?
    – There’s no financial obligation on your part, however you are welcome to make donations to offset the cost of this specific recycling drive as well as ongoing recycling programs. Each box through Terracycle for aerosol cans is $90, and each of my Green Circle recycling boxes is $125.
    – Donations can be made in person by contacting me, or virtually through my LinkTree. If you prefer more direct payment, I can also accept Zelle, Venmo, and Paypal under the name awildcoloristappears.
  • Where can I drop off my items?
    – In person with Sam at your next appointment (or contact me to set up a time to drop off)
    – At the collection boxes located inside The Painted Tree Boutiques in Kildeer or Yin Yang Pilates and Yoga in Lake Zurich.
  • How long are you collecting for?
    – Through the month of August 2023. Collection boxes will be picked up after Labor Day Weekend.
