MADISON (WKOW) -- Artisan Dental has begun the first and only oral care products recycling program in Dane County. The office is helping to keep toothbrushes, toothpaste tubes, floss containers and mouthwash containers out of landfills.
The Artisan Dental Recycling Program participates in the Tom's of Maine Natural Care Brigade, a free recycling program sponsored by Tom's of Maine and TerraCycle.
The Artisan Dental Recycling program also earns money for charity. For each piece of waste sent to TerraCycle, Artisan Dental earns two points which are converted into a cash donation to its charity of choice, Feeding America.
Materials collected as part of the Artisan Dental Recycling program will be recycled into a variety of products, such as cutting boards, and trash cans.
Artisan Dental is also cooperating with the City of Madison Streets and Recycling Department to create additional awareness around the program.
