You know those labels your grocer puts on produce (like on bananas, apples or tomatoes)? Apparently, the labels show up at wastewater treatment plants and go through treatment unscathed. They are gumming up the reclaimed water uptake pipes and causing some problems. A colleague of mine wants to do some sort of outreach to the public asking them to remove the labels, and prevent them from going down the drain. Has anyone on the list serve experienced this problem, dealt with it, or designed a campaign to address it?

Thanks for your assistance.
