All lids go into the red bin please!
In most cases, the material used for a plastic bottle is not the
same as the lid.
If we take a shampoo bottle as an example, the bottle itself may
be HDPE or PET and the lid Polypropylene (PP).
With the lid still attached, it's harder to compress the bottle as
the air is prevented from escaping. Also, before the bottle
can be recycled, the lid needs to be removed. It is important to
remove lids from glass bottles also.
