Here’s a tip for recycling. When you go to recycle #1 and #2 plastic bottles remove and throw away the plastic caps. The plastic caps are NOT recyclable and need to be removed to help in the recycling process. Many times if the cap is left on the bottle is simply thrown away to speed the process. Also, by removing the lid the bottles can be compressed to remove dead air space in the trucks. The recycling trucks can then carry more in each trip and that saves gas.
