Can I recycle caps from plastic bottles?

During a tour of Waste Management's Cleveland Material Recovery Facility (MRF) in November 2008 (which handles waste for 24 communities in Northeast Ohio), we learned that here they are able to effectively sort out the plastic bottle caps (usually #5) from the bottles (#1). Basically, the plastic caps are sorted by shaking the recycling line. If the caps are still on the bottles, when the plastic bottle is compacted, the plastic lids pop off.
