China and Northern Italy are the two main manufacturing areas of plastic bottle closures for hand sanitiser, and as a result of Covid-19, there is now a global shortage of trigger sprays, hand soap pumps, and spray pumps. This is causing issues in getting anti-bacterial hand soap and sanitisers to those in need.

Wholesalers are now being asked to educate their customers to collect and give a quick-rinse to all of their empty closures of any size or brand, place them in an empty cardboard box and book a free collection at recyclebox.co.uk. First Mile will then sort and clean items before returning them to Delphis to be refilled and reused.
