RE: [GreenYes] recycling plastic number 5's and 6's.
Finding a place to recycle plastics #3 is pretty unlikely - that's the PVC
stuff we'd just rather they didn't use at all...
Around here (Washington DC area), supermarkets take #4 (LDPE) plastic bags
for recycling by Trex into plastic lumber.
There are other plastic lumber companies and perhaps other ways to bring
LDPE recycling to Fayetteville.  
Numbers 5 and 6 are pretty hard to find outlets for, due to volume and
weight - issues of storage, economics, etc.  Many shipping and packaging
stores will accept Styrofoam peanuts (#6) for reuse.

Thanks to all the folks who asked!  Keep up the suggestions!

Or number 3's [shampoo, mouthwash bottles, etc]?  Save them for some
future recycling opportunity?  Or is this unlikely?
