    Since New Seasons will be at this event in October do they take the plastic, ( film) bags?

  3. adele regnier says:

    would #2 brown lids ( 3 ” diameter) be acceptable in the #2 group such as lids for Talenti ice cream jars. Also are#2 brown vitamin bottles acceptable.
    Should all labels and glue be removed.
    Lids should be removed from Rx bottles, right?
