[GRRN] 'Nother Simple (but Dumb?) Question on Beer and Plastic

Wed, 6 Jan 1999 22:42:18 EST

Thanks to all who set me straight on the fact that deposits are generally
beverage based as opposed to container material, and I do feel a bit as
if I was in Dumb and Dumber cuz I sort of knew this (although you have to
forgive my ignorance since I do live in Pennsylvania).

Another question though: aren't most deposit system based on the idea
that you can recycle or reuse the container in question? If that is so,
is the industry planning on doing this at least in the deposit states
they sell in? As I recall from all this talk, though I may well be wrong
again, it doesn't sound like it has been determined whether you can reuse
or recycle PEN...???????

Just wondering...
