Harrods partners with waste management business Mygroup on trial recycling scheme

British luxury retailer Harrods has partnered with Yorkshire-based waste management and recycling business, My Group, on a trial scheme to recycle used cosmetics products in one of the retailer’s H Beauty stores.

The scheme will run for three months in Milton Keynes, with Harrods inviting consumers to bring in used cosmetic and skincare products to be recycled. 

Nail polish and fragrance bottles are also able to be returned, despite often being deemed as ‘unrecyclable.’

According to a press release: “MYGroup is a market leader in processing cosmetic waste and has invested in a series of advanced technological processes at its Hull facility, meaning both the packaging and inner product of the cosmetic items can be fully extracted, processed and recycled.

“Consequently, H beauty customers will be able to recycle a huge range of products in store – from make-up items, such as compacts, mascara and eye shadow containers, to shampoo and skincare bottles, lotion pumps and vitamin bottles.”
