For those of you throwing your pill bottles into your recycling bin,
be sure to check your city's recycling regulations first. You need to see which types of plastic are being recycled. In my area, the city accepts recyclable plastics marked "1", "2", and "3" only (look for the number inside the little triangle on the bottom of a bottle; the numbers are codes for the type of plastic of which the bottle is made). Many pill bottles are marked "5", which is a type that can be more difficult to recycle so not all municipalities accept it.
