We have dreamed up the first industry-specific recycling program, for all who utilise acupuncture needles as tools in their treatments.
Our industry is broken.
We believe all practitioners have a responsibility to act in the best interests of our environment.
We know not all our needle waste makes it to be recycled or repurposed in Australia when disposed of in a clinical setting. The plastic waste created can be 100% recycled by us. While we are at it we will continue to remove 1.2kg of plastic waste and debris from our oceans through the Sea Bin Project for every box sold.
If you are an Acu Company customer this service is 100% paid for by The Acu Company. Just head to our Return and Earn product page and checkout. It's free!
If you purchase needles from another supplier that is okay, you can still participate by purchasing a recycling pass for $19.95 and we will take care of your plastic needle waste for you with the rest of the industry’s waste.
Ordering & Returning
Order: Place your usual needle order, and simply add the Return & Earn product to your cart. We send your needles / other supplies and a postage paid bag for you to collect all waste associated with your needles.
Return: When the bag is full simply seal and drop off to your local post office.
Bonus offer: Every equivalent value of 20 boxes of full priced needles purchased through The Acu Company, accompanied by participation in sending your plastic waste back to us, earns you a free box of needles with your next order.
What we do
We receive your plastic waste, separate types of plastic, and then send waste off in a bulk amount to a paid recycling company to be recycled. We will be posting videos of this process for the industry to view.
Terms & Conditions
- No time limits to accrue equivalent full priced 20 boxes of needles.
