Confusion with recycling plastic containers

A triangle with a number (1 to 7) inside stamped on a plastic container or bottle is actually a 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.

About Plastic Lids

Please check with your council for any specific local advice around recycling plastic lids. In general, we advise the following:

  • Ensure the plastic bottle is empty, and crush the bottle if possible.The lid may then be screwed lightly back onto the bottle and placed in the recycling bin
  • Most plastic lids and neck rings are not the same type of plastic as the container but they can be easily separated in many processing facilities.
  • Plastic lids on their own are too small for current recycling technology to sort so do not place them loose in the recycling bin.
