    Yes! The material is very different, for plastic water bottles can easily be recycled, while the tops cannot not. The tops are made out of polypropylene, is a classified number “5” on the recycling scale. In many areas, there is not an easily accessible recycling location for this type of plastic. Plastic water bottles, however, are made out of polyethylene terepthalate, which is a number “1”. The caps are harder to recycle because they are made out of a sturdier material.
