Henkel is pleased to partner with TerraCycle®, an innovative recycling company that offers recycling solutions for the typically non-recyclable.

Through this partnership we have created the Adhesive Recycling Program for our customers, allowing you to recycle LOCTITE adhesive packaging and reduce the amount of waste that is sent to a landfill or incinerator.

How it Works

Customers can purchase a postage-paid recycling box to collect their used LOCTITE adhesive containers. Once full, the box is sent to TerraCycle, where the contents will be recycled.

Order

Contact your Henkel Distributor or LOCTITE® Industrial sales rep to order recycling boxes. Not sure where to start? Contact us and we will guide your purchase!

Collect

When you receive your box, place it in an area where the adhesives are applied or discarded.
NOTE: Only the specified empty LOCTITE adhesive packaging should be placed into the collection box. All bottles must be capped and tightly closed.

Ship

Once the box is full, the liner must be sealed using the zip tie that is included under the lid of each box. The top of the box should be securely sealed with packing tape and placed in your designated UPS pick-up area.

Recycle

When TerraCycle receives your box, the adhesive packaging will be recycled and made into new and innovative products.

When TerraCycle receives the adhesive recycling boxes:

  • Adhesive Packaging is cryogenically or thermally treated in order to deactivate the adhesive
  • Material is melted into sheets
  • The sheets are shredded and pelletized
  • Pellets are turned into new products

How to Be Green at Work in Other Ways

It’s no secret – the world is facing immense environmental challenges. Humankind already has a greater global footprint than the planet’s resources can sustain. While this creates a challenge for the future, it also offers great potential for innovating and achieving more with less now.

Because of this, many companies have either developed waste reduction goals or are exploring establishing them. It isn’t an easy thing to do. Waste reduction requires creative and innovative ideas. We created a waste reduction guide to help you on your journey.
