Cleaner and detergent bottles belong with your RECYCLING.

 

Examples: Washing up liquid bottles, cleaning sprays, and bleach bottles.

Please Remember: Please rinse them out before recycling them so you do not contaminate other recyclable materials.

Hints and Tips: Labels can be left on bottles. Why not keep a small recycling bin in your bathroom to remind you to recycle your bottles and toilet roll tubes?

Facts:

  • Plastic rubbish in the British countryside kills thousands of land animals every year.
  • Enough plastic bottles are tossed each year to circle the planet five times.
  • Recycling a single plastic bottle will save enough energy to power a lightbulb for three hours or more.
  • More than 15% of the money we spend on products pays for packaging – most of which goes straight in the bin.
  • 8 million tonnes of the world’s plastics end up in our oceans each year, creating a waste patch three times the size of France.
