Jars with lids



jar lids, jam jar lids, plastic lids, tops

The lid or cap of a recyclable items can go in the recycling bin. So that means things like jam jar lids and plastic bottle lids can be recycled.

It’s helpful for the recycling process if lids are removed from containers. However, don’t worry if you accidentally leave the lid on a plastic container as this will pop off later in the sorting process. Or in the case of metal lids, they can be removed using an 'eddy current' (opens in a new window) later in the sorting process.

Can be collected with household recycling
