Dental Waste Recycling Program

terracycle dental recycling

We have partnered with Terracycle to help reduce dental waste.

Our Katoomba clinic is an official drop off point for anyone wanting to recycle their dental waste including toothbrushes, interdental brushes, floss and toothpaste tubes (all waste that isn’t permitted to go in your household recycling bin).

The dental waste is recycled into children’s playground equipment.

The recycling container is located at the entrance to our Katoomba practice.

Coffee Pod Recycling Program

nespresso coffee pod recycling

We have partnered with Nespresso to help reduce coffee pod waste.

Anyone living in (or visiting) the Blue Mountains is invited to drop off their used coffee capsules to our collection point, located at the entrance to our Katoomba practice.

The aluminium coffee capsules are sent to a specialist recycling plant based in Nowra, NSW. There, the aluminium is separated from the residual coffee. The coffee is sent to an industrial composting facility to be transformed into compost, while the aluminium is recycled and set back to the aluminium industry to produce new aluminium products.

Our Katoomba clinic is located at 61 Parke St Katoomba. See our Contact page for a map and opening hours.
