Hi Rodney

Thank you for your recycling enquiry.

Hand wash bottle pumps are not recyclable in your home kerbside recycling bin because they are comprised of mixed materials, i.e. metal and plastic that are not easily separated. The metal in the pump would contaminate the plastic recycling stream and vice versa.

Cosmetic bottle pumps can be disposed in your general waste bin. 

Your item will be reviewed for inclusion in Recycle Mate’s search library to help others searching for the same answer! Please get in touch with your recycling enquiries again any time.
