RE: [GreenYes] Recycling collection containers for hotel rooms
I recently learned about www.greenhotels.com <http://www.greenhotels.com>  .
Their members receive many benefits.  Also,
http://www.habitatsuites.com/booklet.html
<http://www.habitatsuites.com/booklet.html>  has an environment hotel
practices guide that is handy in general.  They had a small, blue recycling
bin in each unit and perhaps a call to them to find their supplier would
help.

Also, a search through these various web sites might help.  I haven't
updated this list in a year, but most should still be good links:
