Once that bottle is popped, there’s no going back [at least for the cap!]! Unlike plastic bottles that can be recycled along with their plastic caps, metal bottle caps usually appear on glass containers and can’t be re-secured to the bottle once it is opened! Why is this an issue? Since the caps are less than 3 inches, they’re too small to make it through our single-stream recycling systems on their own and usually end up in landfill!
Instead, we’ve found a better home for them with Seattle Recycled Arts! Artists will create works of art from these caps, which would otherwise go to waste!
While what we take in this category varies by partner, here is what is generally included.
We work with local partners to bring new life to your stuff. From community reuse to grassroots recycling, we make sure it stays out of the landfill.
Every organization in our partner network is dedicated to reducing waste and making a meaningful contribution to our communities. Learn more about how we vet our partners and what partners we work with in your area on our blog.
