RE: [greenyes] Recycling around the world

I still haven't had time to read the entire article, but here's another
inaccuracy.... they said that 40% of all plastic soft drink bottles are
recycled in the US (it's 30%) and 55% of all aluminum beer and soft drink
cans are recycled in US (it's 45%)... We'll definitely get a letter off
about that.

Madison has had a curbside program since the late 1960's, and I would have
to believe that there were many others by 1985.

To see an inaccuracy of this magnitude makes me wonder what other
inaccuracies are occurring in other documents....
