Feel good about yourself, do good for the planet and get treats along the way. Everyone’s a winner with our recycling scheme.

What is the Recycle at Boots scheme?

Together with No7, we’re doing our bit to help keep our planet beautiful. That’s why we’re trialling a recycling scheme where you can bring your empty beauty, health, wellness and dental products, from any brand, that can’t be recycled at home.

Why is Boots doing a recycling scheme?

We know lots of beauty, health, wellness and dental items can’t be recycled traditionally due to their size, what materials they’re made from and various other factors.

We want to play our part in looking after the planet by making it easier to recycle items that might be difficult to recycle elsewhere. And we want to reward you for playing your part and making recycling part of your regime too.

What's unique about the scheme?

We’re using Scan2Recycle technology, developed by our partners Metrisk and ReWorked, to create a unique solution that helps the environment and rewards customers at the same time. Win, win!

When you visit one of our participating stores and bring five empty products to one of the in-store recycle bins, we’ll give you 250 Boots Advantage Card points when you spend £10 or more – that’s worth £2.50 (see coupon T&Cs here – offer 23). We’ll also track how many empties you bring back so you can see the positive impact you’re making to the planet.

What can I bring back?

We’d love you to bring back beauty, wellness, healthcare or dental products that you can’t recycle through your household waste.

It doesn’t matter what brand they are or where you bought them, we’ll make sure they find a new lease of life. Take a look at our T&Cs for a list of things we can and can’t currently recycle.

The scheme is designed to complement local recycling schemes and fill a gap for items that are not accepted kerbside. That is why we ask you to put items like shampoo, conditioner and shower gel bottles in your recycling bin at home and we will not be rewarding them as part of our scheme.

What happens to my empty products?

Once you’ve dropped your empties into the bins in store, they’ll be taken to ReWorked where the materials will be washed and sorted, ready for recycling into new usable products as far as possible.

Any remaining multi-material items will be recycled into Stormboard, a composite construction board material, similar to ply-wood, which has a lot of different uses.

Organics will be processed through an industrial organics processor. Nothing goes to landfill and nothing is incinerated.

After you’ve used the scheme, you’ll be able to log into your account to see how much you’ve deposited.

With your help, we’ve already recycled over 373,000 items – weighing over 6000kg – in the first six month of the scheme.

How good does that feel?

How can I take part?

What a great idea. Shame there are no participating stores near me. Hopefully the trial will be a success and they can expand.
