I'm interesting in knowing just how much of the plastic #'s 3-7 is getting recycled in your program - collected, processed and returned to end users.  We chose to limit our program here to just the #1 and #2 plastics simply because there were no markets for the other post consumer resins.  And, we didn't want to pay the extra amount that the contract hauler would charge for us to have them collect them unless they were actually being recycled.
