All lids must be removed from bottles, jars and containers.
If the lid is larger than a credit card, put it into your recycling bin separately. If the lid is smaller than a credit card, put it in the garbage.

The biggest mistake people make is putting their recycling into a plastic bag and then putting it into their recycling bin. A good rule of thumb is if you can scrunch it up into a ball, it can’t go into your recycling.
