How To Dispose of Old Makeup?

Good Question

Pin it button
Q: I was recently cleaning out my medicine cabinet, and I have a whole bunch of old makeup (as in, years old) that I know is way past its shelf life. Some of the products are not necessarily eco-friendly and/or biodegradable, so I'm wondering how I should dispose of them? I don't just want to throw them out because I've read that the chemicals can leach into the ground and the water system.

What are my options for safely disposing of my old makeup?
