Safety Razor Manufacturer UK

So you just bought a shiny new eco-friendly, reusable bamboo safety razor. And being the sustainable citizen that you are, you want to know how to recycle the blades. Don’t worry, help is on hand!

All metals and alloys can indeed be recycled as long as the integrity of the metal has not been altered by another substance. It’s more than likely that the only substances that have come into contact with your razor are water, shaving foam and some unwanted stubble!

All you need to do is rinse and wipe your blades to get rid of any excess beard hair and take them to your friendly local recycling centre. Throw them in the scrap metal bin and they will be recycled and given another life! Easy right? 

If you have any more questions related to recycling safety razors or any other products, comment below or send us an email. We are always happy to help spread knowledge and awareness!
