Why recycle plastic bottle tops?

Plastic is a low value product with high volume.  How much you separate depends on its end re use.  If it is going towards hard plastic (eg garden benches) then lots of things can go in, if it's going towards making bottles then it needs to be more precisely sorted.

What do we do on Coll?

These items are recycled at the Village compound. 

Our plastic either goes to Oban or Tiree for processing.

How can I get involved?

We ask that you remove plastic bottle tops from bottles and recycle separately.

It can be an issue if bottles with lids are put into the baler.
