recycling bottle caps

Not sure if this is the right place to post this but here goes.....

The little Eroski has a collection point for bottle caps now. eg The brightly coloured plastic tops you get on plastic milk bottles etc.   :)

How bizarre.  Why just the caps?

Ah  from the little I know, the plastic that caps are made out of has to be treated in a different way to the plastic from plastic bottles etc.  The material is then recycled and can be made into types of 'thread' etc.

Some charities in the UK have similar collection points and manage to make small amounts of money from the proceeds. 

In land fill, bottle caps do not disintegrate at all so this could be a good thing to do with your plastic bottle caps.   :)

Yet another plastic bag to find a place for in the kitchen for recycling!  I totally agree with it all, but it does cause storage problems for all the different bags, especially in a small kitchen.  :-\
After all is said and done, a lot more will be said than done!

Agree Bella

 Have same prob at home , put all ours in one and then have to sort in bin shed. End up with a sticker mess all over me hands . Shampoo, Beer, Wine, bits of newspapers etc etc

Job I detest , usually drop the lot as well which adds to my pleasure.

 I really must get out and down the beach !!!
