Plastic Lids

Landfill (Trash) Cart

Hard plastic caps are accepted for recycling only when attached to the plastic bottles/containers that they came on.

Loose plastic caps and other plastic lids (like the drink cup lid pictured) go in the landfill cart, since they are too small to be captured in the recycling sorting process.


Ways to Reduce


Bring Your Own Cup

Carry a travel mug or water bottle instead of using disposable coffee cups or plastic cups.

Ways to Reuse

Repurpose Plastic Lids

Plastic lids can be repurposed as soap trays, party coasters and more. Check out this list for inspiration.
