Re: [GreenYes] Curbside Collection of Glass
Jeff, I've been puzzling over this and wondering if you could clarify 
something.
Is the $18 - $68 savings based a hypothetical "100% recycled content" glass 
container? Or does the *range* reflect different percentages of cullet in 
the batch?

(I would look this up, but you'd save me time if you know it!)
