Can anyone on the list provide me with quick examples of city or community =
recycling programs that have stopped collecting individual materials for =
recycling because of economic or market reasons? (e.g. ABC City stopped =
collecting plastic bottles curbside in 1997 because they could no longer =
find markets or afford the collection costs for plastics.) I just need =
the basic info for use as examples, preferably things that were dropped =
from programs within the last 5 years.

Thanks ahead of time for your help.
