RE3.org tweeted from the CRA conference. We tweeted live from the plastics keynote session on Thursday, where we learned that yes, you can leave the caps ON when recycling your plastic bottles. Some of our followers had questions on this mind-blowing revelation. @waste_not, a waste reduction educator from Vancouver WA, responded with “Caps on? Reasons? We definitely prefer OFF! on this coast...” @RE3org responded by tweeting: “The plastics people said the newer equipment can handle the caps; It's the older equipment that has problems with them.”
