The plastic can was banned in several states many years ago.

We started receiving the PETE-AL can (AL top, PETE with plastic

Recyclers don't want it.
* The aluminum guys don't want it because the can has PETE plastic and
* The PETE guys don't want it because it has aluminum and film.
However, the state of California slapped a CRV label on the container,
and it has the recycling triangle on it.
How have MRFs handled this new material?
What can be done to stop this very mixed product from entering our
