PLASTICS?

Yeah, we get it. but since the Plastic Industries Assoc. decided to use the recycle symbol and a number to designate the type of resin in the container, even when it wasn't recyclable, it's not our fault!  It doesn't make sense, and that's why plastics end up in the landfill. They just aren't recyclable.
