Clean Plastic Caps & Lids Program

Caps and lids should be left off plastic bottles, jugs, and food containers prior to recycling.  Items smaller than a credit card, including loose caps, are too small to be recycled.Caps Collection Bin

Clean Plastic Cap and Lid collection bins are located at each Community Recycling Drop-off Site. All caps and lids must be made from plastic and be clean prior to recycling.

Examples of caps and lids accepted include plastic water bottle caps, medicine bottle caps, sour cream tub lids, to-go cup lids, butter tub lids, laundry detergent lids, and peanut butter jar lids.

Instead of going to the local recycling facility, plastic caps and lids through ACDEM’s collection program will be made into food-grade wax and renewable natural gas.
