Guidance

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.

If the triggers/pumps remain attached to the bottles some 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.
