How to Recycle Anything: Antiperspirant and deodorant sticks.

Many brands have a dial on the bottom that is made of a plastic polymer different from that used for the container, so your center might not be able to recycle the whole thing (look on the bottom to find out). However, Tom’s of Maine makes a deodorant stick composed solely of plastic No. 5.

First in a series of posts on recycling!

  1. On the Tom’s of Maine website they say that if you mail your empty deodorant containers, they will recycle them.

  2. That is precisely what I was going to say. I’ll do my part to recycle, but it gets a bit disheartening when you realize that there is a whole lot of 5 and 7 out there…

  3. That’s all well and good, but according to RIRRC, “In Rhode Island, only plastic bottles and jugs with the numbers 1 and 2 can be recycled.”

    I hope the rest of the series is more useful. :)
