Collecting bottle tops for prosthetic limbs
We currently use all flat soft drink, water and milk bottle tops, including those from long life containers.
The tops should be numbered either No 2 or No 4 in the recycled triangle but not all are marked. Ideally all bottle caps should be sorted into 2, 4 and unknown. We can use the unknown bottle caps for our R&D projects. We cannot process tops which have other plastic or metal attached – this includes water bottle tops which have pull up tops. Any tops with other numbers like 5 or 7 are not required. We also ask that the caps are cleaned before they are donated and that no extra plastic, metal or other material is attached.
