RE: [GreenYes] Alternatives to "Traditional" Curbside Recycling
Could Jean-Louis confirm that Nova Scotia has a very comprehensive 
deposit/return program which applies to *all beverages except milk*. Hence, 
the blue bag will be dealing with very little glass (wine, liquor, fruit 
juices, water, etc. go back for cash refunds). Perhaps NS has data on how 
much glass actually shows up in the Blue Bag programs there. Thanks,
