Leeds residents are being encouraged to leave metal screw caps on glass bottles and jars when recycling at the city’s bottle banks.

People can screw the aluminium tops back on empty bottles before dropping them at recycling points across the city.

The ‘you can leave your cap on’ campaign has been designed by Aluminium Packaging Recycling Organisation (Alupro) to make sure that the aluminium caps from glass bottles are recycled.

Councillor Mark Dobson, executive member for the environment, said: “It’s the ideal time to get into the habit of screwing caps back on and helping to boost our recycling figures.”
