Hmm, I have stopped doing this after checking with East Waste who said no. Our bottle tops go in loose and I'm now sending anything smaller than this to landfill.
Just checked their search engine which says to do this for straws. Need to check what your council waste management provider requests.
I put the bottle tops in a large plastic bottle as in the video - I used to hate just putting them in the bin!
If you’re like most of us, you have a household full of electrical and electronic goods! And what happens when you no longer want them or they stop working? Do they go in the shed, to gather dust and never be seen again?
On average, every Australian discards 20kg of electronic waste every year!
But did you know that most of it can be recycled! Speak to your local recycling depot, council, ECycleSA or Electronic Recycling Australia to find the closest recycling location to you! ... See MoreSee Less
Dear KESAB, I have one more question. Please advise me. - I have a large number of Video casettes, which I like to through away, because my video player is kaput and cannot be repared. The casettes are made from some kind of plastic and their covers are similar to plastic. In which bin do a put them or can I take them somewhere. Went to Bunnings, but they won't take them. Please, reply soon.😃- Greetings to All.
ECycleSA recycles electronic waste items at no charge. Drop off locations and opening hours can be found at www.ecyclesa.com.au
Did you know that you can recycle old x-rays at Red Cross?
Quantum Technical Services have a partnership with Red Cross that has multiple benefits; 1. The reduction of x-ray film to landfill sites 2. Red Cross earn revenue for the silver value of the x-ray film, which they inject back into the community. ... See MoreSee Less
I live in the Onkaparinga council and they are pretty good in their knowledge in what can and can`t be recycled. I always asked them if I`m not sure and if the answer is no or they don`t know then I double check and see if its true or not.
Your local Kindy/child care/school might like them too...children love to explore how the body works 😃
I just had a clean out. I have quite a few over the last few decades. Great timing
Did not know that & have been wondering what to do with old X-rays... thanks for sharing 🌻
Ground floor of the Pirie Street, Adelaide Red Cross has a collection bin.
That's a ripper - I love innovative & unexpected green ideas....
DR JONES AND PARTNERS in Morphett vale too.

Robyn Borten Osborn Rebecca Hagman for your medical mates....
Marcia Ricketts this is good to know, might have to get them all together and make a trip to donate them all, I'm sure there is a massive pile at yours
