What to do with
Although squeezable toothpaste tubes are made from plastic, they are difficult to recycle and it is unusual for councils to collect them as part of your recycling collection scheme. This also applies to other squeezable tubes that contain products like hand cream, sun cream and moisterising lotions.
The pump action toothpaste tubes are made from a different type of plastic and are easier to recycle. Check with your local council to see if you can put these in your recycling bin.
