Empties Cleaning Guide

Follow our empties cleaning guide below to ensure your beauty packaging can be properly recycled.

Glass Bottles

Clean the pump as best as you can by placing the end of the straw in a glass of water and pumping several times to flush product out. Clean the inside of the bottle with soap and water or toss in the dishwasher.

Glass bottles are curbside recyclable. The pump can be dropped off at a Pact Collection Bin or mailed to Pact Collective directly.

Jars

Wipe out any remaining product with tissue, then clean the jar and lid with soap and water or toss in the dishwasher. Reattach lid to the jar.

All of our jars and lids are curbside recyclable.

Tubes

Use scissors or a box cutter to cut off the top of the tube. Wipe out any remaining product with tissue, then clean the tube with soap and water.

Tubes and caps can be dropped off at a Pact Collection Bin or mailed to Pact Collective directly.

Deodorant Sticks

Make sure you use as much of the product as you can. Rinse with hot water and soap, then reattach the cap.

Deodorant packaging can be dropped off at a Pact Collection Bin or mailed to Pact Collective directly.
