Recyclables and Toiletry Samples
Help ConnectUS while preventing items from ending up in the landfill! ConnectUS can use recyclable items and toiletry samples for a variety of purposes.
Everyone has free samples of toiletries floating around the house that never seem to be put to use. Instead of letting them gather dust, give them to ConnectUS, to be packaged for people in need. The samples needed in particular are shampoo, body lotion, body wash, toothpaste, toothbrushes, and deodorant. ConnectUS can use your empty, clean amber medication bottles for packaging toiletries for those in need, as well. Through projects like this, your excess samples and medication bottles can bring meaningful activities to the lives of our members, while helping our members give back to their community. Please take a look at our web site for more information on these projects.
ConnectUS is also part of the TerraCycle recycling program. TerraCycle diverts billions of items that would otherwise end up in landfills or incinerators, and either upcycles or recycles the waste into new products, reducing the need for new materials to be extracted from our planet. We are now accepting empty Scotch tape rolls and dispensers (all brands) to be turned in to TerraCycle for credit, which will be converted into funds for other ConnectUS projects. Who ever knows what to do with those tape rolls when they are empty!? Collected rolls and dispensers may be dropped off at any ConnectUS event, or given to any member of our Board of Directors. To mail corks, please package them securely and send to:

As you are spring cleaning, please keep ConnectUS in mind.
