The Skin Wardrobe is thrilled to offer an innovative recycling solution for your beauty, skincare and make-up products. The Beauty Box Zero Waste Bin™ system is an all-in-one recycling solution from TerraCycle®. TerraCycle® takes ‘hard-to-recycle’ items and turns them into raw materials that can be reused instead of being sent to landfill.
What does ‘hard to recycle’ mean?
Items that are ‘hard to recycle’ are those that cannot be placed in your home, or curbside, recycle bin. They often contain components that council recycling systems do not accept.
Always check for the recycle symbol on the item itself. If you are unsure if it can be placed in your home recycling, check your local council website for guidance.

Single component packages (such as plastic shampoo bottles and caps) or double component packaging that can be separated (such as a glass pot with a plastic lid) can be placed in your
The Beauty Box Zero Waste Bin ™ caters for more complex items where the components cannot be separated - your mascara brush for example, or our make-up compacts with mirrors and other spring load components.
Bring your empties in!
Next time you are in our Studio, remember to bring your clean, empty ‘hard to recycle’ items and place them in our Beauty Box Zero Waste Bin ™. TerraCycle® will collect them from us and take care of the rest.
If you live outside the Auckland area and are unable to make it into our Studio, please check your local council website for guidelines on how to dispose of ‘hard to recycle’ items in your region.
