Plastic Bottle Caps
Blue Bins & Chutes
Recycling Bins & Chutes
Good news! Most plastic bottle caps are made from HDPE plastic which is the most recycled plastic.
Bad news! They are so small that if they are put into the blue bin, they will probably get filtered out at at the recycling sorting plant ("Material Recovery Facility").
So only put them in a blue bin IF THEY ARE screwed onto a matching HDPE bottle!
These colourful plastic bottle caps are great for small recycling projects like The Plastic Project. Save them up to give in one big batch.

Freecycle / Give Away
Schools and art projects ask for donations of such bottle caps from time to time. Save them up and give away when there is a collection drive.
