What should you do with plastic bottle caps?

Date Published: Friday 11th January 2019

RECOUP recently published an evidence paper on the recycling of Caps on Plastic Bottles. The paper stated - It can be confirmed that plastic caps should be left on plastic bottles for recycling. This reduces the potential for the cap to be littered separately, and when attached to the bottle it also allows the cap (as well as the attached neck ring) to pass through the sorting facility and get to a plastic bottle reprocessor.

There has recently been an article published recently discussing the issue which you can view here. You can also download our evidence paper here.
