Lids

Lids need to be removed from bottles and jars for processing.

Bottle tops and lids larger than the size of a business card (eg. lids from jam jars) are much easier to sort, and can be placed in your yellow-lid recycling bin, provided they are separated from the bottle or container.

Plastic bottle tops smaller than the size of a business card should not be placed in recycling bins, and need to be placed in your green-lid rubbish bin. Some schools also collected them for art projects.

Steel bottle tops can be recycled via this method:

Steel bottle tops are too small to go straight in the recycling bin; they will fall through the sorting machines.  The best way to recycle them is to collect them in an empty steel can and when the can is about half full squeeze the top closed and put the can and tops in the recycling bin.  At the recycling station, magnets will pick up the steel can, with the tops inside and drop them in a collection basket ready to be melted down and reused.
