Types of Clean Plastic Caps Accepted

Recycle Plastic Bottle Caps
Plastic 5 - PP

Our program focuses on recycling #5 (polypropylene) plastic caps. Please rinse or clean caps well enough to remove any remaining product. Our facility does not have a wash line. Please remove foil, foam or paper liners. (Most caps are NOT marked with the #5. We can recycle caps meeting the following criteria):

  • Caps from threaded neck bottles (soda, juice, shampoo, detergent, aspirin, etc.
  • Plastic Jar Lids (peanut butter, pickles, mayo, etc.)
  • Flip caps from tubes, personal care products & food product bottles (condiments)
  • Flexible snap-on lids (butter tub lids, yogurt cup lids, etc.)

Caps NOT Accepted

  • No caps with foil, foam or paper liners (unless liners are removed); glue residue & flexible plastic liners are OK
  • No dirty caps encrusted with food particles or foreign materials
  • No flat, snap on/off lids from milk/water jugs (usually made from #4 LDPE)
  • No metal lids or caps with metal inserts (nothing metal at all)
  • No plastic pumps or sprayers (typically contain metal components)
  • No caps or lids that break when bent (possibly #6 PS or other brittle plastic)
