Recycle your Tetra Pak lids and plastic milk bottle tops

14th December 2016

EMERGE Recycling are trialling the recycling of Tetra Pak plastic lids (the pouring mechanism) and the plastic tops from milk bottles.

[UPDATE: UNFORTUNATELY THIS TRIAL SCHEME HAS FINISHED – BUT YOU CAN STILL RECYCLE PLASTIC BOTTLE TOPS AND TETRA-PAK LIDS BY TAKING THEM TO YOUR NEAREST LUSH COSMETICS SHOP]

Go on, you know you can – keep a small bag in the kitchen and rip the lid off the Tetra Pak before you recycle the container, and separate the plastic bottle top from the milk container.

Please bring them, cleaned, to Manchester Friends of the Earth* and a volunteer will deliver them (by bike!) to those lovely people at EMERGE for recycling.

* Please email  beforehand to check when a volunteer will be in the Manchester Friends of the Earth office.  office@manchesterfoe.org.uk
