How do I know if the plastic is 1, 2 or 5?Why can't lids go in recycling?
Plastic lids from containers and bottles must all go in the rubbish as the recycling sorting centres cannot properly sort these items. Due to their shape and weight, they end up being accidentally mixed into the wrong recycling groups and contaminate these materials.
They are also often made from a different type of plastic than the container or bottle.
