A Greener Orchard Hills


St. Martin’s Church are helping save the planet and raise money to put back into our community through The Colgate® Oral Care Recycling Programme with Terracycle®.

Any money raised through this scheme will be put back into the community by supporting the local Community and Sensory Garden on Daffodil Road.

As a new public drop-off location, St. Martin’s church will be collecting via a Terracycle® box which is located in the hallway by our main hall, signposted at the entrance. It can be accessed Sunday to Friday, 10am-1pm.

Here, you can recycle;
• Any brand of toothbrush
• Any brand of toothpaste tube and caps (Please remove as much toothpaste from the tube as possible, thank you)
• Any brand of toothpaste cardboard cartons
• Any brand of electric or battery toothbrush heads
• Any brand of toothbrush outer packing
“Once collected, the oral care products and packaging are separated by polymer type, cleaned, and extruded into plastic pellets to make new recycled products.”
