Philadelphia, see

Also the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments has a Hotel and
Restaurant Recycling Guide posted on their web site at
http://www.mwcog.org/environment/recycling/hotel/

Also I had this in my files :

Here is what the great state of North Carolina is doing with bar and
restaurant container recovery. Click this link:

In 2005, House Bill 1518 was ratified to require holders of certain
Alcohol Beverage Commission permits to implement recycling efforts for
beverage containers sold on premises by January 2008. The bill further
provides a disposal ban on these materials.

On the local scene, The City of Hickory in western NC has a
city-operated bar recycling program. Contact John Yvars for more
information on Hickory's program jyvars@no.address
