At CLOUD NINE we’re dedicated to being fiercely kind to everyone, planet included. That’s why we launched the industry’s first and only styling tool recycling scheme. Our goal is to save 1.5 million styling tools from landfill.


Whatever the brand, whatever the condition, we’ll recycle your old straighteners, wands, tongs or hairdryers for free.


We’ll recycle all straightening irons, curling wands and tongs and hairdryers, whatever the brand, regardless of where they were purchased.
Our recycling service is available to all UK residents aged 18 and over. As part of our long-term sustainability strategy, we will be extending this service internationally over the next few years, so watch this space! We do not offer this service to any firm, company or partnership. Please visit our Terms and Conditions for more information.
You can track your return during its journey to us with the Royal Mail. Once your return has arrived at our recycling centre, due to the volume of returns, we are unable to provide you with the recycling status on your individual item.
Once your old hair styling tool has been received at our recycling centre, they will either be reused, repurposed or recycled. Your old styling tool will be collected from our recycling hub at CLOUD NINE HQ by our waste management partners. They are then taken back to their facility, where all items are manually depolluted. All parts that can be recycled are removed and separated before the items are shredded. The components are then broken down back into their raw materials and sent for smelting. If we receive a pre-loved CLOUD NINE product which isn’t at its End of Life (EOL), we will refurbish it, provide it with a new manufacturer’s warranty, and resell the tool to a new home for a discounted price, here.
