Recycling small metal items

Small metal (eg. bottle tops, can lids)

If small pieces of metal (eg. bottle tops) go into the recycling bin loose they will end up in landfill as they are too small to be sorted.

To recycle small pieces of metal:

  1. Place small metal into a milo/coffee tin
  2. Keep the container in a convenient place and fill it up with your small metal pieces
  3. When the tin is full put the lid on and chuck it into your recycling bin

OR put small pieces of metal into a smaller can (eg. baked bean) and squash the top of the can to ensure they can’t fall out.
