Plastic and metal bottle caps can be recycledinthe blue, recycling bin. Please note: They must be attached to a container before this can happen.

Loose caps can entangle recycling machinery. If you have a loose bottle cap, please put it in the grey landfill cart.

Facts

Metal bottle caps and jar lids are mainly made from steel (some bottle caps are aluminum) with a polyethylene (plastic) lining. The plastic lining will be burnt off when the metal is processed to make new metal products.
