Sustainability in Dentistry
Cairns Precision Dental Group has recently signed up to Terracycle Australia as a registered drop off point for certain recyclable items.
Last year alone 30 million toothbrushes were disposed of contributing to 1000 tonnes to landfill.
Instead of being part of the problem we want to be part of the solution and encourage you all to do your bit as well.
Together with Terracycle, we can recycle or upcycle plastic waste instead of incinerating or landfilling it.
Recycling is a core part of our practice ethos of creating a positive impact in Cairns and the surrounding tablelands area and caring for our earth and environment by recycling and striving towards a zero-waste future.
If you have any of the following items, please drop them at our front reception in a sealed bag and we will send them to Terracycle Australia:
- Toothpaste tubes and caps: please cut and wash the remaining toothpaste to make handling cleaner
- Manual toothbrushes (all brands)
- Electric toothbrush heads
- Electric toothbrush bodies
- Toothbrush and toothpaste tube plastic packaging
- Floss containers
- All beauty products
- Shaving razors (all brands)
We are offering this recycling program as an important part of closing the waste loop. Lets work together, recycle and create a cleaner future for all.
