Plastic bottle caps are no longer on the recyclables list for Bainbridge Island/Kitsap County. However, Ridwell, the local special recyclables subscription service, has a semi-annual collection of bottle caps. If you don’t have a Ridwell subscription, find a neighbor or friend who does and ask when the collection is and if you can contribute. The caps are recycled into new plastic pellets for manufacturing new plastic items.
