We saw recently in a local paper, a letter stating that we collect and recycle milk bottle tops. This created an enormously encouraging response and we have been inundated with milk bottle tops. Unfortunately, whilst we do recycle textiles, footwear, ink cartridges, stamps and mobile phones, we cannot recycle plastic milk bottle tops, as we donâ€™t have the facility to handle them.
We would like to assure all those kind donors that their enthusiasm will not be wasted as all the milk bottle tops will be donated to MenCap New Forest, a very worthy cause, who do recycle the milk bottle tops.
We hope that all these kind people will continue recycling by saving textiles (including unwanted bras!), shoes and all the other items listed above Â for Hampshire and Isle of Wight Air Ambulance ,which will help us raise the Â£110,000 a month that we need to keep Â the Air Ambulance flying and saving lives. Â These can all be taken to your nearest recycling bank, and a complete list of bank sites is on our Recycling page, here.
