On Monday 12 October 2015, another load of plastic milk bottle tops was assembled and taken to our recycler resulting in a donation to the London Air Ambulance fund.
Many local organisations collect the milk bottle tops for us, and Rotarians collect the bags from schools, choral societies, hobbies groups and so on. The bottle tops are then inspected and put into clear plastic bags before they are shipped off to the recycler. The recycler then washes the bottle tops and processes them into fine grade chips so that they can be reformed into new plastic products.
At the same time as reducing the country’s consumption of petroleum compounds for the manufacture of new plastic products, we forward the money paid for the bottle tops to the London Air Ambulance appeal.
We think that constitutes “two birds with one stone” – great!
