Sophelia Posted November 5, 2022 Share Posted November 5, 2022 OK, so I have a load of 1 litre plastic water bottles that I want to recycle, and I need to crush them to fit them in the recycle bin. The problem is: I don't have a technique - I've never done this myself and I'm a bit of a wimp (my hand/arm strength is poor) When I am with my dear beloved and he does it, it makes an excruciatingly horrible loud squealing noise and I have to go out of the room I have tried google without success - couldn't find a YouTube video on how to do it, except for this one using the mouth - which I will not try!!!! I have searched for bottle-crushers but not getting an impression they will do 1 litre water bottles - most are wall-mounted tin crushers. The two things I can think of to try are: Stamp on them Put it in a vice (vise) and squish it slowly (if the grip holds it) Any other suggestions? What do you do? Thank you for any ideas (even frivolous ones!). Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
