As technologies have improved, MRFs have found better ways to sort different plastics even if they come to the sorting facility attached together, as should be the case with #1 (PET) bottles and their caps, which tend to be #5 (PP) or #2 (HDPE) plastic. This does not work the same for caps on glass bottles and jars. Those should be put in the recycle separately, unless you are told something different by your hauler.
