Bamboo: Use a pair of pliers to remove the bristles from the head of the toothbrush. Once the handle is free of bristles, it can be disposed of in a composting bin. The bristles are very small and curbside recycling may not work. We recommend that you dispose of the bristles with your household waste or contact your local recycling facility to see if there’s a solution for recycling the bristles.
Plant-based: In most countries, toothbrushes (of any material) are not recyclable in the curbside recycling system. We recommend checking with your local recycling facility to see if they have a solution for PLA/PP-mixed materials.
