Recycling Plastic Bottle Caps

Liholiho Elementary School is collecting the plastic covers from water bottles, sports drinks and soda containers. Those plastic bottle caps are often times thrown away and they end up in our ocean. Birds bring them back to their nests and feed them to their young. The plastic caps also wash up on our shores and break down into tiny pieces of plastic and they pollute our beautiful shores.

Accepted are caps and lids with the symbol 2 (HDPE), 4 (LDPE) or 5 (PP). These include caps from drinks, shampoo, food products, detergent, medicine, supple-ments, spray cans, toothpaste and coffee cans.

Not accepted are metal, Styrofoam or clear lid covers from drinking cups, pumps or sprayers, and any caps that are dirty.

Please rinse them out and bring them to Liholiho and we will be happy to recycle them. Please don’t throw them away. You can send them in with your child and label it: “To: Mrs. Johnson” or place them in my mailbox in the school office.

For your information, we’ve collected 135.5 lbs of caps and lids from Jan. – Aug. 2012!  Thank you for protecting our precious environment!

– Mrs. Johnson
