RECYCLING CHEAT SHEET

1. Check with your
local recycling program.

Confirm they collect items that look like yours. If they
don’t, bring them to Target’s Recycling Station.

2. Make sure it’s empty.

Items with 10% or more residual formula won’t get
recycled.

3. Make sure it’s clean.

Rinse out empties, but don’t worry about drying them.

4. Disassemble parts, if needed.

Depending on the item, remove sprayers, spring
pumps, droppers, lid liners, and other pieces.
