Many of our community recycling programs do not accept the plastic caps from bottles. The plastic caps are a different plastic than the bottles. Make sure you always remove the cap before you recycle the bottles. Mixing different plastics together can ruin the recycling process. So, now that you’ve removed the cap what do you do with it? Many times it’s tossed into the garbage. A friend of mine told me about another option. Aveda is collecting and recycling the caps. There are a couple rules in this process. It needs to be a number 5 and a rigid plastic. Here is the link where all is explained. http://aveda.aveda.com/aboutaveda/caps.asp Thanks for recycling those caps!
