Personal Care & Beauty Products - New/Unused

Toiletry items are personal care items use for hygiene, grooming, making up, or cleaning oneself, such as soap or deodorant.

Use it up or donate.

Per CalRecycle, please do not put non-medicated lotions, cosmetics, fragrances, sunscreen agents, and similar products down the drain or into the toilet; the trash is the best "away." Click here for medicated lotions, creams and shampoos, and here for nail polish.
