I have been a very interested reader of pharmwaste and am happy that =
this list
exists.  One question that I think was posed and possibly answered was, =
"are
there recyclers of medicine bottles that exist in the U.S.?"  A similar
question, below, came over another national list and I looked for =
pharmwaste
archives and did not find them.  Do archives exist?  Answers to these =
questions
would be greatly appreciated.

Is there a market for recycling medicine containers (e.g., pill
bottles)? If so, is there a list of companies that can recycle these
items into useful new products?"
