Nearing Completion!

Our bottle cap projects are almost complete!  This has been a great project for our students and a very beneficial recycling project.  Bottle caps are surprisingly difficult to recycle.  Some recycling machines are easily jammed by plastic shards and tiny lids.

Did you know that plastic bottle caps are often made from a different kind of plastic than the bottles they are attached to?  These different types of plastic have to be recycled separately.  If the bottle and the cap were recycled in the same batch of plastic,  the two different plastics would melt unevenly and the whole batch would be ruined.

This has been a fun project.  Please be sure to check back again in a few days to see our finished masterpieces!  Thanks for visiting.
