Roll-On Deodorant

Alternative ways to recycle
Recycle Curbside

No Caps or Balls

The plastic used to make the balls and the caps is usually different from the actual bottle, so no matter what you do with the bottle, always put the caps and balls in the trash. If you can’t remove the ball, toss the entire container in the trash.
