What in the world are we meant to do with lids!?
Key points:
πŸ‘‰ No, it’s not true that lids aren’t recyclable, they simply just fall through the process because of their size so they need to go to a specialised facility/drop off point
πŸ‘‰ If the lid is larger than a small yoghurt pottle, it is fine to go in your general curbside recycling
πŸ‘‰ If there is no recycling/material number on the lid, it shouldn’t be recycled even if you think it might be a certain number, if you’re wrong it will cause contamination of the good stuff!
πŸ‘‰ Not all specialised facility/drop off points will accept the same selection of lid material types, check first!
πŸ‘‰ Every region differs as to who you can take your lids to for recycling, give it a Google or ask your local council
