Instructions

Put in the gray landfill cart. This is a mixed material item. Plastic toothbrushes are not recyclable in your curbside cart.

Alternatives

Use a bamboo toothbrush, one made of recycled plastic or purchase from a company that has a takeback program.

Facts

Toothbrushes can be made of a variety of different plastics that must be processed seperately, which is very expensive and inefficient for recyclers.
