Floss & Dental Products Recycling - Free!

Tom's of Maine has started a program where you, or a group you work, with can collect empty floss containers, toothpaste tubes and other dental products and send them free of charge by way of UPS to be recycled.
In fact, you and your group can earn $0.01 for each item you recycle.
Here's a short video that explains the Tom's of Maine program:

I believe this will also be a site where you can send  your used floss picks, which are now made by several companies.

Although handy for some flossers, they've become a very conspicuous litter item on streets and in parks.  Recycling them would give them a good place to go after their short life.
