Banish Recycling And Disposal Program

At Banish, recycling is something that we feel very passionately about, so much so that we're using TerraCycle Zero Waste Boxes to offer an end-to-end solution for some of those hard-to-recycle household items.

Did you know that only 9% of the plastic that has ever been made has been recycled? We're trying to grow this number significantly through TerraCycle's Zero Waste Box solution.

Plus, for every package you send us you'll receive a $15 voucher to spend online.

Important information

1. No wish-cycling: only send in products and items that you know can be recycled via the program. If you are unsure about a product or have any questions please email lottie@banish.com.au

2. Clean and green: one of the most important things you need to do is make sure that the items your sending back to us are nice and clean. All that TerraCycle asks that you empty your products out as much as possible. 

3. Keep it dry: we don't want a soggy satchel ruining the post which is why it is important that everything is dry when it's posted to us. Rinse, dry then ship!
