Plastic Cap Recycling

Plastic caps made from plastic #1 to #7 (on water bottles, juice jugs, milk gallons, jars, etc.) are recyclable in Monroe County since June 1st, 2011.

  • If your waste hauler is supporting  the Monroe County Recycling Center (MCRC) “Blue Box” recycling program, keep the caps on the bottles or jars and put them in your recycling box.  It is important for the caps to remain on the bottles and jars so that they don’t get jammed into the recycling equipment.
  • For other waste haulers, drop your containers and their attached caps at the EcoPark located south of the airport.
