While silicone recycling facilities do exist, they aren’t widespread and don’t often accept materials from consumers. Additionally, since menstrual cups are considered medical devices, there are additional challenges when it comes to recycling.
For now, the best way to dispose of your cup is to put it in your household trash. Better one cup than a thousand tampons!
While used cups aren’t yet recyclable, the industrial scraps from the manufacture of our cups are recycled into silicone lubricant for medical devices and adhesives.
