[GreenYes] Mouth Smaller at Neck - Why?


A lot of plastics recycling programs specify that they only collect 1 & 2 plastics that are "smaller at the neck than at the base" otherwise referred to as "narrow-neck" bottles. However, I have not yet found a reasoning for such a thing. If something is a 1 or 2 plastic, why does it matter the size or shape of the item? I would guess it has something to do with the machines they use to sort with.. but I don't know why else they would say this. If 1 & 2 plastics are relatively easier to recycle than others, and are having a higher demand, increased economic value, etc.. why would they not wish to collect them all?
