Waste Nothing

sealing a plastic bag with the top of a plastic bottle
Image source

Use scissors to cut the top part of the bottle off, a little below the neck. You can still recycle the bottom part. Take your plastic bag and put the top through the top of the plastic bottle from the bottom, bend the plastic around it on the outside, and screw on the lid. See seal a bag for instructions with photos.

This applies to Disposable plastic beverage bottles.
