Are Bottle Caps Recyclable?

A common question that we get in the recycling industry is what to do with caps and lids on glass and plastic bottles/ jars. The good news is, we have some answers!


Before throwing glass bottles and jars in the recycle bin, we ask that you remove the metal or plastic lids first. You can place the lids loosely inside the recyclable container, making eventual separation possible. By removing the lids from glass containers, you are minimizing contamination!


Now, what about plastic bottle caps? It just so happens that plastic bottles are a different story. But don't worry, it's a good one! There is no need to remove lids or caps from plastic bottles or jars, because the lids and containers are both plastic. We do ask that you drain all liquids prior to throwing your bottles into the recycle bin.


Keep up the good work recycling your glass and plastic containers...and lids!!

Mining is the world's most deadly occupation. On average, 40 mine workers are killed on the job each day, and many more are injured. Recycling reduces the need for mining.
