Confusion with recycling plastic containers:

A triangle with a number (1 to 7) inside stamped on a plastic container or bottle is part of the Plastic Identification Code.

1 2 3 4 5 6 7

This code identifies the type of plastic the product is - not if it can be recycled.

mobius loopPeople often confuse the 'plastic identification code' for the general recycling symbol (mobius loop), which involves three chasing arrows.

About Plastic Lids

Most councils will ask you to remove the lids from your plastic bottles before you place them in your recycling container, for the following reasons:

  • Plastic bottles must have lids off and be empty because the weight of a half full bottle makes it more difficult for the recyclers automated systems to recognise it as a particular recyclable item.
  • Plastic bottles must have lids off and be empty to prevent the liquid spilling and ruining other recyclable products or damaging the equipment at the recycling centre
  • The plastic lid is a different type of plastic from the bottle
  • Plastic lids are too small for recyclers to recover with current technology
