[GreenYes] Prohibition of the sale of glass bottles
Below is my response to a request for information. The
request (below my response) was this:  are there any
jurisdictions in the mainlaind U.S. that that prohibit
the sale of beverages in glass bottles.  It sounds 
rather bizarre to me.  Anyone else care to respond to
Andy?   THANKS

Dear Andy,

I am not aware of any such prohibition agains the sale of
glass bottles or any other type of container anywhere in 
the U.S.  May I ask where he read or heard of such a 
thing?  Perhaps he is confusing prohibition of the sale of
glass bottles with communities that have begun to drop
collection of glass bottles and jars from municipal 
curbside recycling programs.  This is happening with 
increasing frequency here on the mainland, as more and
more curbside recycling programs move to single-stream

I am putting your request on two listserves.  I will ask
folks to respond directly to your email, but will use only
your first name.  I will also copy you on those emails.  
I would appreciate it if you let me know what you find out.

I work for someone ... who was told that there are some jurisdictions 
....that prohibit the sale of beverages in glass bottles, and he asked 
me to find out where these places are.  I am wondering whether you 
have any such information.

Your assistance would be much appreciated.
