Are the blades recyclable? And if so, where can they be recycled ?

Razor blades are considered medical waste, so they're incinerated. However, you could ask your local pharmacies if they have a box to collect them (some barbers also have these). In France, these boxes are yellow, and will be burned once they're filled. You can throw your razor blades in the bin, but make sure they're wrapped in something so they can't pierce your bin bag or injure anyone. At present, TerraCycle® doesn't have a solution for recycling razor blades in Europe, but they are testing this in the USA. Our innovation team is following this very closely, to see if it can be set up in Europe.
