Instead of just throwing away bottle tops, you can save them to help make a difference to Newark’s veterans.

Dennis Salmon, an ex-Royal Engineer serviceman, is appealing for people to save their plastic milk bottle tops to help raise money for the Newark Patriotic Fund.

As the bottle tops are not widely recycled due to the type of plastic they are made from, they would normally go to landfill.

But a new scheme by some recycling centres now means that they can be collected and then recycled, with donations then made to charity.

“I’ve collected thousands so far, and last month we raised £90 just from collecting the bottle tops,” Dennis said.

Any bottle tops for the Newark Patriots Fund appeal can be dropped off at the Newark Advertiser office on Fernwood Business Park.
