How to dispose of bottle caps, wine corks and milk lids
Put small metal lids and small plastic lids in your black cart as garbage.
Tip: If the lid is smaller than the palm of your hand, it belongs in the garbage.
- Beer caps
- Pop lids
- Milk caps
- Wine caps (including aluminum caps)
- Bottle lids
- Beverage lids
Why can't this be recycled?
Even if they are made from a recyclable material, caps are too small and light to be sorted properly by the sorting machines at the recycling facility and end up contaminating other recyclables. If you take your beverage containers directly back to a bottle depot, it is ok to leave lids and caps on in that case.
