                 coffee-cup sleeves

                 Those outspoken Berkeley residents are at it again.
                 The problem this time? Nasty used coffee-cup
                 sleeves.

                 A group of people say it's a health hazard to reuse a
                 cardboard heat shield that protects hands wrapped
                 around hot coffee cups.

                 Some coffee houses in the area have been recycling
                 the sleeves to save paper and trash, meaning people
                 have to use a sleeve that has already been in contact
                 with another human hand.

                 The issue was brought to the city council meeting
                 Wednesday night. It was delayed until next month,
                 when city officials will ask health officials to
                 research the matter and consider whether to
                 prohibit reusing the sleeves.
