Bottle tops – recycling


Most plastic bottle tops are made from a plastic that can be recycled but there is very little awareness around this and local authorities do not have the equipment or facilities to process them. It is a grey area of recycling but one that the team wanted to address for Whatley Manor as through the course of a day we generate a lot of bottle tops.

We discovered that Lush handmade cosmetics recycle plastic bottle tops and all you have to do is drop them into your local store.
The bottle tops are processed and sent to Storm Board, based in Somerset. They use waste plastics to produce a board that, due to its weather resistant properties, can be reused many times and recycled into another board at the end of its life.
