Save plastic bottle closures to help in fight against COVID-19

Anti-bacterial hand sanitiser producer Delphis Eco and leading recycling company First Mile are calling on wholesalers and retailers to encourage their customers throughout the UK to help in the fight against COVID-19.

They are urging consumers to recycle all of their plastic bottle closures – such as trigger sprays, hand soap pumps and flip-top caps – via a free RecycleBox courier collection.

This is because China and Northern Italy are the two main manufacturers of plastic bottle closures for cleaning and personal care products and, as a result of COVID-19, there is now a global shortage of bottle closures. This shortage is causing issues in getting anti-bacterial hand soap and sanitisers to those that need them the most.    

UK households are being asked to collect and give a quick rinse to all of their empty plastic personal care and cleaning closures of any size or brand, place them in an empty cardboard box and book a free collection at

First Mile will then sort and clean items before returning them to Delphis to be refilled and reused.
