    Nice inexpensive system for keeping the caps!
    Somebody has uses for the caps. An amazingly large amount of bottle caps can be collected in a year or two.

    These sometimes have a large magnet under the opener to catch the bottle caps. It's a design option some people find useful.

    I like just putting the trash can underneath and letting the caps automatically go into the trash.

    Who else has ideas for using the bottle caps?

    Great project for either kitchen or a back patio. And if it is portable, you can move it wherever you want it.
