Shampoo bottles

Shampoo bottles

What?

Hair shampoo and conditioner bottles are rigid plastic.

Where?

This should be placed in the household recycling bin.

How?

Make sure bottles are empty before placing them in the recycling bin. Turn them upside down to use up all the product before disposing of them. There is no need to remove the labels as this will happen during the recycling process and also you can remove the lid, squash the bottle and then place it back in. With the air removed from the bottle it means you will have more room in your recycle bin.

Prevention Tip

If you are want to reduce the amount of plastic you generate look out for solid versions of soap and conditioner. Eco Stores, health food shops and certain pharmacies sell these products. They can also be purchased online.

You can drop off your used personal care and beauty product packaging at public drop-off locations across Ireland. Check HERE
