Recycling Journey of a Plastic Cap

The flowchart below highlights how a typical plastic cap travels through the entire recycling process. Although a PET bottle is used in the flowchart, the same steps can be taken to recycle plastic caps on many other types of containers including: laundry detergent and other cleaning products, shampoo, conditioner, body wash, as well as condiment, snack, and other food bottles. The video below takes the flowchart further with detailed descriptions of each step in the process.
