Re: [greenyes] Shrink Wrap Bottles

Does this mean that we should encourage people to remove the wrap before 
putting wrapped bottles into their recycling bins?  Should we tell them 
not to put the wrapped bottles into the bin at all?  Of course, it would 
be best if people didn't purchase bottles wrapped with PVC.  But what do 
we do in the meantime?
