    I recently obtained a plastic (brown) beer bottle when visiting the Midwest.
    What was the last news about this item, its potential to contaminate other
    PET plastic, and general recyclability? I got the bottle at a baseball
    stadium and there lots of containers from Miller to collect the bottles. But
    how would this be in the general recycling stream?
    Thanks,

    Subject: [GRRN] Outdoor Beverage Recycling Containers

    Dear Greenyes,

    I am in the process of purchasing beverage recycling containers for a
    outdoor beverage recycling program. Some parks are subject to heavy
    vandalism and theft. Containers need to be heavy enough that they
    cannot be removed easily from one place to the other (but can be
    moved if they need to be). And most importantly, they need to
    include recycled materials. Do any of you suggest any particular
    container types or specific vendors? Thank you for your help.

    Sincerely,

    Kae Ono
