The kerbside collection scheme in Onchan, Douglas and Braddan collects plastic bottles for recycling. Bring Banks for plastic bottles are also located at the Eastern Civic Amenity site at Middle River Industrial Estate, Pulrose Bridge, Douglas. Please remove bottle tops and try to crush the bottles (if you ask the kids, they are normally very happy to jump on them!). Crushing the bottles means we are able to collect up to twice as many before the vehicle is full and removing the lids means we are able to ship more bottles in each load that goes to be recycled. This saves fuel and therefore helps save the planet.
Most carrier bags are made of plastic. Although these are very durable and can be reused many times, they do not break down if dropped as litter.
All plastic bags can be reused. They can also be recycled at Tesco, Douglas (look out for the bag recycling container outside the main entrance). These bags are reprocessed into plastic film.
