Aldi trials removal of coloured milk caps

Aldi is trialling clear caps on its milk bottles as it looks to improve the recyclability of its products.

The supermarket is removing the green tops on its British Semi Skimmed Standard Milk bottles and replacing them with clear caps, which are easier to recycle.

Aldi estimates that an additional 60 tonnes per year of recycled high-density polythene could be turned back into food-grade packaging as the milk bottle tops will be reused to create new milk bottles.

Richard Gorman, plastics and packaging director at Aldi, said: “We know it’s becoming increasingly important to our customers that their everyday products are environmentally-friendly, and we are constantly reviewing ways to become a more sustainable supermarket.

“By trialling clear milk caps we are making our milk bottles easier to recycle, so they can be turned back into new packaging.”

The supermarket said it is on track to have 50% of its plastic packaging made from recycled materials by 2025.
