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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
