This scheme will only accept the plastic tops from the plastic milk containers - 1, 2, 4 or even 8 pint tops are all fine, semi-skimmed, full fat or any other type and colour are all acceptable but they must be washed! Please save them up and ask your families/friends to do the same as we need quite a lot before we can benefit from the scheme!
