How to recycle ALL of your Air Wick products

Confused about what to do with your air fresheners at home when they’re finished? Here’s all the information you need to ensure you feel as good about your impact on the environment as you do about the enticing scents in your home.


At Air Wick we have partnered with OPRL and TerraCycle® to give you the guidance on how to recycle our products and provide a way to recycle all our packaging even if your local council does not have a collection for a specific material.


What is an OPRL?

The On Pack Recycling Label (OPRL) is a simple and consistent UK recycling labelling icon used to give you guidance on whether a products packaging can be recycled. By putting OPRL on our packaging we hope that it helps you to recycle more materials, more often.


Who are TerraCycle®?

TerraCycle® is an expert in developing solutions for packaging that cannot yet be recycled in the home recycling bins provided by local council.

We have built this partnership to ensure you are able to recycle Air Wick flexible plastics (for example our Twin Pack Freshmatic sleeve) which are often not accepted by local councils for free.

In return for flexible plastic submissions into the Air Wick TerraCycle® recycling programme members will receive points, which can be redeemed for charitable gifts of their choice, visit our programme information page here.
