All plastic bottles need to be put into the red box.  We only collect plastic bottles for recycling because there is a very weak global market for plastic pots, tubs, trays and films.  By having a clear message about only recycling plastic bottles, this gives residents the simplest of guidance, too. 

Plastic bottles are baled and taken to a reprocessor who will turn them into new plastic products and packaging.
