Milk bottles are pretty much recycled everywhere. Here's a reminder of what to do with them:
Make sure they're empty! If you leave liquid inside, the bottle will be heavier and this extra weight will stop it from being pushed onto the right conveyor belt as it goes through the recycling process
- Empty, rinse and replace the lid
- Leave the label on
- Squash to save space
Did you know?
It takes 75% less energy to make a bottle from recycled plastic compared with using 'virgin' materials.
