Dental Care Recycling

Oral care products and packaging can be recycled at the Center for Dental Excellence, located at 19615 Governors Hwy in Flossmoor. Plastic toothbrushes, empty tubes of toothpaste, empty dental floss containers, floss picks, interproximal brushes, and oral care product packaging are accepted. Electric and battery-operated products are not accepted. You do not need to be a patient at CDE to drop off your recycling; all community members are welcome to join the effort to reduce our waste. Receive a free bamboo toothbrush when you drop off your recycling!
