RE: [GreenYes] Should we do glass curbside
We're getting back to Pigovian taxes again! The way we 'push' for 
refillables, glass, or whatever other container seems preferable is to 
adjust the prices so it is cheaper than the offending alternative. Problem 
is: it becomes a political question and who's going to decide which is 
better? I actually prefer plastic bottles because they don't lacerate my 
bike tires...
