This is currently a trial in these stores, so hopefully it'll be rolled out nationwide if successful.

You'll be able to recycle most makeup items like lipsticks and mascara wands, as well as shampoo bottles, but you won’t be able to recycle the likes of aerosol cans, perfume bottles, nail polish bottles, hair dyes, brow and eyelash tints, razors, used PPE, food packaging including crisps, medicine, vitamins/supplements blister packs and foils; any electrical items and any medical devices.

The items don't even need to be sold by Boots themselves!

Note that you can only get a maximum of 500 points per day so you're better to split them into separate visits for maximum profit on the points.

500 points rewards are issued via a barcode, sent to your email address. You then have to take it to the in-store No7 till point, together with your Advantage Card. You must redeem that barcode on the day you get it or you won't receive your 500 points.

Further details can be found here*.

It's worth keeping an eye out in the post for vouchers that give you personalised Advantage Card offers too. These really help to boost your points balance.
