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 Scan 2 Recycle 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 500 Boots Advantage Card points – that’s worth £5! 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.

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 and how many empties have been recycled collectively. How good does that feel?

How can I take part?

It's really easy to take part, simply register here https://boots.scan2recycle.com/ and follow the steps below to get recycling and collect your rewards.

Some people use them for an art project or the plastic gets split and spun into recyclable clothing.

I have gained £90 Boots points through recycling scheme.

This is awesome! A great way to stop it going to landfill. Just a shame that my nearest is Bluewater, which is easily an hour away.

I went to my local store and they said they weren't doing it, despite being on the list of participating stores on the website. Disappointed!

That happened to me in the my local Boots store.. what you need to do is phone Boots Customer Services and explain to them that: It says on Boots.com that the local Boots store you live near is on the Recycling list and so you spent time sorting your plastics, then you went ALL the way down to the store, only to be told they don't do it.. that's what I did, They apologised and arranged for a Recycling Bin to be couriered to the store within a week.. I was so chuffed.!!! It's worth a try.? It'll be well worth it in the long run.. think of all those vouchers you could get, Good Luck🤞

A good incentive to get more items recycled! My closest participating store is about 20 miles away but worth taking items when heading that way. Thanks for sharing 😀

Absolutely love the whole concept of this but hate the thought of having a back log of empties waiting around and piling up until I go... Auto pilot it goes into recycle but with the recycle bins being emptied less often, this is a way to reduce I guess plus get extra points so it's kind of worth the empties waiting around 🙄🤦🏼‍♀️

Thank you for sharing, will try my local Boots. Do you know if they take shampoo bottles or make-up items? I have saved a bunch because some brands at Boots used t give free samples for 5 empty used products.

I have gained £110 worth of points the last month on this. Used my points 4 times to buy luck on the meal deal.

I have ran out of containers now. Emptied most of my supplement bottles.
