Westmead's war against waste

Recycle and win a community garden for your school

Every year Australia sends 30 million toothbrushes to landfill which equals to 1000 tonnes of waste. This waste will remain in landfill indefinitely. Help WPS in the war against waste and donate all your used oral care to be recycled! 

WPS are entering TerraCycle's Colgate Community Garden Challenge. Prizes include a community garden set worth over $7000!

We will send your used and empty oral care items to TerraCycle, a company which recycles these items and makes them into new things like park and school play equipment. The program accepts any brand of oral care (not just Colgate!). Make sure you squeeze all the toothpaste out of the tube first!

1 item = 10 points

You can vote for WPS for extra points at 


Anyone can vote - as long as they have an email address.

Competition closes October 31st 2018.
