Prescription drug bottles have recyclable symbols, the triangle on the bottom. Who is responsible for that?

Even Walgreen's has a sign in every store that you should not throw a prescription drug bottle in their garbage receptacles to protect your privacy. How could they be so stupid as to put a recyclable symbol on them? Bureaucracy produces such mindless automatons.


Putting the recyclable symbol on them and expecting people to place their prescription bottles in a recyclable bin is as brazen an invasion of privacy as there is. That's of course if anyone even pays attention to it. Your prescription bottles should actually be crushed even if they're thrown in a closed garbage bag. They're every bit as confidential as your financial records are and you shred them.
