Plastic toiletries and bathroom bottles belong with your RECYCLING.
Examples: Shampoo, shower gel, soap dispenser bottles.
Please remember: Check they are empty first as left-over liquid can make other recyclables dirty.
Lids and labels can be left on.
Hints and Tips: Try putting a bag or bin in the bathroom to remind you to recycle your bathroom bottles and toilet roll tubes. Some shops now sell ‘refillable’ toiletries, or why not use shampoo/soap/conditioner bars instead?
- 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 garbage patch three times the size of France.
- Only 50% of recyclables from the bathroom are actually recycled.
