RE: [GreenYes] Prohibition of the sale of glass bottles
The French Quarter in New Orleans prohibits the sale of glass bottles within
an approximately 16-block area.  The city has no "open container" law as
most cities do, and thus tourists (and others) are allowed to walk around
with alcoholic beverages in the streets - but only in plastic cups or
non-breakable containers.  There is an actual ordinance I have seen posted,
but as I was only a tourist I don't have a source for it.

Subject:	[GreenYes] Prohibition of the sale of glass bottles

Below is my response to a request for information. The
request (below my response) was this:  are there any
jurisdictions in the mainlaind U.S. that that prohibit
the sale of beverages in glass bottles.  It sounds 
rather bizarre to me.  Anyone else care to respond to
Andy?   THANKS

Dear Andy,

I am not aware of any such prohibition agains the sale of
glass bottles or any other type of container anywhere in 
the U.S.  May I ask where he read or heard of such a 
thing?  Perhaps he is confusing prohibition of the sale of
glass bottles with communities that have begun to drop
collection of glass bottles and jars from municipal 
curbside recycling programs.  This is happening with 
increasing frequency here on the mainland, as more and
more curbside recycling programs move to single-stream
collection.

I am putting your request on two listserves.  I will ask
folks to respond directly to your email, but will use only
your first name.  I will also copy you on those emails.  
I would appreciate it if you let me know what you find out.    

Regards,

Pat Franklin

I work for someone ... who was told that there are some jurisdictions 
....that prohibit the sale of beverages in glass bottles, and he asked 
me to find out where these places are.  I am wondering whether you 
have any such information.

Your assistance would be much appreciated.

Andy
