What to do with the plastic bottle tops??

Pocapecunia, the charity shop in aid of The Love A Child Foundation, used to collect plastic bottle tops and customers brought them to the shop.

When I had bags full, I dropped them at the petrol station, just before Lidl on the way to Frigiliana.

As I did yesterday, but all of a sudden they refuse them now.

Does anyone have an idea what to do with them?

Can I drop them now in another place?

Don’t they need them anymore? pocapecunia @ yahoo.com

Our electric garage door has become very temperamental – it opens OK but then will only close a third or half way down, so needing to be closed manually.
