Hand Sanitiser Bottle

Hand Sanitiser

Guidance

These can be recycled at home. Empty and rinse well, labels can be left on.

Pumps and triggers on plastic bottles are likely to be a different material to the plastic bottle so, ideally, we would ask people to remove these so they are separated from the bottle. However, if the triggers/pumps remain attached to the bottles many will pop-off during processing, so will be removed that way. In addition, in some cases the recycling will go first to the Materials Recovery Facilities (MRFs), for sorting into the different individual materials, but the plastics may then go on to a second sorting plant called a plastics recovery facility (PRF) for further sorting and they will then be extracted there.
