Plastic Bottles

Plastic Bottles

Did you know?
Plastic bottles are made from oil and recycling them means less oil needs to be extracted. It also reduces landfill and potentially cuts CO2 emissions. It's also more energy efficient to use recycled plastics than raw materials when making new products. Recycling one plastic bottle saves enough energy to run a 60-watt light bulb for six hours.

Reduce
Avoid buying bottled drinks, especially when there are not outlets for recycling the packaging. Where possible use tap water and drink from a reusable container.

Reuse
You can reuse plastic bottles as handy storage containers or cut them up and use them as pots for seedlings. Carry a bottle that you can refill from a tap to avoid unnecessary purchasing of bottled water.

Recycle
You can recycle plastic bottles using your clear recycling sack or your recycling bin. Please rinse them and squash them before putting them out. We cannot recycle bottle lids so please remove these and put them in your general waste.
