Albatross Blade Take Back Program


Albatross Blade Take Back Program


The Albatross Blade Take Back Program exists because not all municipal recycling companies currently accept used razor blades.  We have developed a used blade take back program for all Double Edged safety razor blades.  

Simply collect your used blades in the envelope they come in when you buy Albatross replacement blades. When you’ve gone through a pack of blades, seal that envelope and insert it into any other envelope at least 3.5” X 5” large (USPS minimum) and send to:

Albatross Designs

PO Box 2254

It is important for us to re-utilize the stainless steel our blades are made of at the highest level possible.  We aim to recycle the steel into a potentially higher value product in terms of CO2 mitigation and energy savings than the original blades themselves over the long run.  If you use non-Albatross blades, we will accept your blades too.  You can store and ship your blades in a variety of containers, such as used pill bottles, a used soup can duct taped on one end, or by using a heavy weight internal envelope inserted into another envelope as is our standard procedure.
