Detergent and soap bottles (e.g. bleach) can be recycled at any Household Waste Recycling Centre or your local kerbside recycling collection. Remove any pumps as these are not recyclable.
Empty & rinse items, replace tops and don’t squash the bottles…
• Liquids and residue can contaminate other materials which may mean they are not
recycled, and they can also damage the sorting equipment.
• If bottles contain liquid they might not be recycled as they go through the
automated sorting process (the extra weight stops the bottle being pushed into
the correct recycling stream).
• Squashed bottles won’t be recognised by the sorting equipment as bottles.
– Leave on labels: these will be removed in the recycling process.
