Detergent and soap bottles

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.
