      Maureen gives the best advice on this. 

      If they are loose in the recycling cart, they fall through the cracks of the sorting machines and end up becoming a problem by contaminating the crushed glass. The answer is to lightly screw them back on the bottle before they go into the blue bin or just throw them away or take to the M.e.t.

      I am trying to collect them to be used in children's art projects, but I have found I get way more of them than I can find homes for. I also have to wash them (in a hand washer machine) before I can give them to the Tulsa Children's museum. I have focused mostly on water bottle lids (easier to wash).

      If anybody wants some, I have a big box of them right now.

      We decided to address general items; not specifics like caps. Caps at the MET go to lids for kids. Caps securely on the bottles are OK. Loose caps contaminate the glass stream. 
      Hope this info helps.

      The video doesn't address the caps left on plastic bottles - I thought the caps is a big no no. Anyone?
