    Arkansas doesn't recycle bottles because they have nobody to ship them to to recycle I was told.

    We can't recycle our glass at all so 30% is better than what we can recycle.

    that;s disappointing to know only 33% of glass gets recycled
    overall we really need to be better consumers BUT then each industry and packaging needs to improve to a biodegradable solution!

    I thought bottles were easy to recycle.

      Me too, I remember back in the day that you use to pay a deposit and just return them for the deposit back, if that would be a high percentage than maybe we should start that again.

      They're also counting glass (jars) used for p-nut butter, jam, pickles, condiments, etc. for which few want to clean and place in the curbside recycling bin (if even available in their area at all).
