FAQ’s

When you become a member, we provide you with in-salon bins, containers and Sustainable Salons merchandise. We also virtually train you and your team about what can and can’t be recycled so we can effectively divert 95% of your salon materials away from landfill.

Depending on your service, we will collect your materials every 2 weeks or you can request an on-demand collection.

Once collected, your waste resources are sent to one of our depots then sorted, cleaned and prepped to go to our recycling partners.

Yes! We service anyone from a single operator to a big franchise so we can help you make a real impact.

You should be servicing at least 10 clients per week to be eligible for our membership.

Other than the one-off Set Up Fee of $348, your ongoing Sustainable Salons membership is cost neutral, meaning your membership doesn’t have any ongoing costs!

When you become a member, we ask you to add a Sustainable Salons fee of $3 to the end of each service bill. These are then ‘collected’ by your salon and then given to us as your weekly membership fee. However, your weekly fee does not change as it is based on your average weekly clients.

We calculate this by asking for how many clients you serviced in the last year and divide that by 52 to get your average number of clients per week. We then multiply this by $3 to get your weekly fee.

The Sustainable Salons Fee goes toward supporting a range of important sustainability and community initiatives:

40% – Resource collection and redirection

25% – Implementing green practices

20% – Supporting the community

10% – Researching recycling solutions

5% – Awareness and education

We believe that we’re all responsible for the ethical disposal of any waste produced by a product or service we choose to consume.
