LOCTITE® Anaerobic Adhesive Recycling Program

Henkel is pleased to announce a partnership with TerraCycle®, an innovative recycling company that offers recycling solutions for the typically non-recyclable.

Through this partnership we have created the Adhesive Recycling Program for our customers, allowing you to recycle LOCTITE anaerobic adhesive packaging instead of sending it to a landfill or incinerator.

How Does it Work?
Customers can purchase a postage-paid recycling box to collect their used LOCTITE adhesive containers. Once full, the box is sent to TerraCycle, where the contents will be recycled.

Contact Us or LOCTITE Industrial sales rep to order recycling boxes.


When you receive your box, place it in an area where the adhesives are applied or discarded.
NOTE: Only the specified empty LOCTITE adhesive packaging should be placed into the collection box. All bottles must be capped and tightly closed.

Once the box is full, the liner must be sealed using the zip tie that is included under the lid of each box. The top of the box should be securely sealed with packing tape and placed in your designated courier pick-up area.

When TerraCycle receives your box, the adhesive packaging will be recycled and made into new and innovative products.

When TerraCycle receives the Adhesive Recycling boxes:

  • Adhesive Packaging is cryogenically or thermally treated in order to deactivate the adhesive
  • Material is melted into sheets
  • The sheets are shredded and pelletized
  • Pellets are turned into new products
