Plastic jars are containers that usually have screw on caps - for example, peanut butter and mayonnaise jars. The screw on caps to bottles are accepted for recycling as long as they are screwed back on tight to the original container. Plastic jars are accepted in curbside recycling, the Drop-Off Station, and the Recovery Yard.
Make sure your plastic jar is empty and clean. Screw the cap back on tight to ensure that it gets sorted with the plastic containers! If the plastic jar caps are put in your curbside recycling bin loose, they are vulnerable to literally falling through the cracks at the recycling sorting facility.
Live Zero Waste!
