Can I recycle metal bottle caps?

Metal bottle caps are accepted in most local recycling programs, but the problem is they’re so small they’re often missed by the sorting equipment, so they end up being sent for disposal. If you can, collect bottle caps in a metal can and then pinch the rim closed to trap the bottle caps inside.
