Freelancer STARTER KIT (hair, metal) with Returns Box


Recycle your hairdressing hair and metal waste with Green Salon Collective. This starter kit contains everything you need to start your recycling journey: bins, bags, marketing stickers, green fee strut and your first mini returns box. 

This kit is perfect for freelancers, nail or beauty salons, mobile hairdressers, wedding hairdressers and anyone who feels like the smaller size will be right for their businesses.

Our Salon Waste Recycling Program has no hidden fees, contracts, monthly payments and is profitable for many of our members thanks to the Green Fee system

The returns box holds approx. 175 clients worth of waste.

Step 1: Buy your starter kit and get ready to recycle!

Step 2: Start charging a small, optional, £1 Green Fee to your clients to cover your recycling costs and promote your sustainable initiatives within the salon.

We recycle your waste hair in over 10 different ways, and any profit made from selling recycled aluminum goes to charity. We provide marketing and social media content to help communicate this with your clients.

Step 3: Collect your hair and metals waste separately, until your returns box is filled to the brim. Once its full you can request a collection here.

Step 4: Order a new returns box and keep the recycling going!

This Starter Kit includes:

  • Mini hair bin.
  • Mini metal bin.
  • 1 x Prepaid Mini Returns Box (worth £94)
  • Window stickers (designs vary).
