Hi - Owens Illinois, who manufactures multi-layered 
plastic bottles (ketchup and beer, among others) is 
trying to change Kentucky law.  Kentucky currently 
requires a multi-resin to be classified as 7 (Other).  
They want to have these classified as a 1 or 2, even 
though the bottle may have either cups, labels or 
layers resins of more than one type.

Have you come across this issue?  I am concerned 
that the material may contaminate the waste stream, 
causing purchasers to reject the plastics and in turn 
cause communities to stop collecting #1 plastics.

Fitz
