Steel lids (from beer or cider bottles, passata bottles etc.) are recyclable! ♻️

However, because they are so small we need to contain them in something bigger to make sure they make it through the recycling process without getting 'lost'.

An empty steel can (e.g. baked beans can) is perfect - once the can is full, squish the top to close it and pop the whole thing into the yellow lidded bin!

Not sure if your lids are steel? An easy test is to use a fridge magnet - if the lid is magnetic (i.e. sticks to the magnet), it can go into the steel can.

What do you do with small non magnetic metals?

I use a Milo tin perfect for keeping them all together.

What if they have the plastic underside? Is this still recyclable?

Or if you gain collected them in a small 60ltr bin(seperating steel from aluminum) and take to a scrapyard to buy more food etc😉.

We might all have had a bit too much chocolate over the last few weeks, but it's fantastic to see South Australian businesses like Haigh's Chocolates embracing the circular economy and ensuring their organic waste is composted rather than sent to landfill! 👏😋

Jeffries
Haigh's Chocolates have been crafting world class chocolate in South Australia since 1915. Still driven by strong family values, they work with Jeffries to make the future greener for future generations.

Have a peak into how Jeffries and Haighs collaborate to give chocolate a second life in the ground.
