Recycling plastic lids

We recently found out that you can recycle bottle lids!

Specifically they're looking for number 5 plastic, which many lids are. I've contacted them to confirm, and they will also take the stupid ring left on your plastic bottle that's impossible to get off. If you can get it off.

But alas, Shatto milk bottle lids are number 4. For us, our milk is one of the few remaining situations where we actually have plastic lids.

Anyone know where to recycle the lids from glass jars? Normally I'd trust earth911.com to help me find somewhere, but it doesn't list anything around us, and the Google hasn't been much help yet either.
