A common mistake made with plastic bottles and containers is leaving the tops and lids on. We advise that you keep recycling:
Lids and bottle tops are often made from a different type of plastic and contaminate the recyclable product. Remove lids and place in the red bin.
Food and drink residue contaminate recyclable material. A quick rinse before placing in the recycling bin is greatly appreciated.
Plastic bottles and containers are sorted using an optical sorter, which identifies the shape of the product. Sorters are unable to open individual bags of recycling so keep recycling loose and unsquashed in the bin.
