Can Plastic Jar And Bottle Lids Be Recycled?

Every plastic container has some type of cap or closure. It’s usually a safe bet that the container can be recycled but what about the lid? Well, most caps are made from polypropylene which has a resin code of “5”.  This means that it is recyclable.

Does my local recycling facility recycle plastic caps?

The short answer is that you need to check.  Some recycling facilities may ask you to separate the cap from the container, some may accept them together with the container and others may not be able to recycle them.
