Are Bottlecaps supposed to go in the Zuri Bag

Hi Guys,

I just got a nice bottle of beer and was wondering where the caps went. Not sure what they're made of but theres a little plastic covering on them that doesn't properly come out anyways.

I was just wondering if these are metal or aluminium and what people do with them.

I put them in the same recycling as other tins.

I also put them together with metal, but first I cut them and remove the inner plastic disc (if present).

Aluminium would be too soft for a bottle cap. I put them in with other metal, but don’t worry about taking off the plastic bits. I figure the process is going to deal with that much more efficiently than I can.

Yeah, I saw on wikipedia that these were metal or aluminium so I didn't want to make a mistake here. Anyways, seems like Opfikon doesn't have the tin bins, I'll have accumulate my tins and take a trip to the waste center
