Re: [greenyes] oil/antifreeze containers

I can't understand why plastic motor oil or anti-freeze containers would not 
be recyclable. Marked wth a number 2 symbol, I have been putting them in with 
my plastic for years-wherever plastics are collected. New York City has just 
resumed collecting plastic- limited to #1 & #2, but with no mention of 
exceptions for those containers. Have I missed something?
