Information for Bottle Top Collection Points

All tops should now be collected in empty milk cartons - no plastic bags at all please.

Please ask all those who bring you plastic bags with plastic tops and caps that they now need to:

  • Collect tops in an empty washed milk carton
  • Rinse clean all tops before squeezing them into the milk carton

Bottles of tops are best stored in a cardboard box or a plastic box prior to collection or delivery to one of The Matthew Project's Recycling Banks (see Recycling Bank Locations).

Thank you for your cooperation. Your support is much appreciated.
