That’s why we’re committed to sending all your used foils, colour tubes and cans right back to your salon in the form of new and shiny (and completely recycled) products!
Metal is the most valuable material we recycle, and thanks to the commitment of our members, we’ve been able to donate these proceeds to produce meals for those in need.
All metal waste, including balls of scrunched up foil (the larger the better!) gets thrown into our baling machine at the depot which then crushes and compresses it. This bale is then wrapped in recycled cardboard to protect it before it gets sent to our metal recycling partners.
Refoil uses scrap metal gathered by our salon members to produce 100% recycled aluminium foil products. So the next time you’re getting your hair dyed, just think all those foils in the bin can actually end up back on your head again and again!
Recycled metal is the most valuable material of the bunch, fetching anywhere from 20c to 90c per kilo sold. For every $1 collected, we can feed two homeless people.
To put that in perspective, one head of foils is about enough for a quarter of a meal, and one bale is enough to feed 200!
