Iowa and Michigan both have deposits on cans and bottles. They also have higher percent of recycle compared to Minnesota. If they pass it will be a money maker. But not from me I recycle all my beer and soda cans.

I already recycle every beverage container I use here in Fairmont, for a simple reason: it's cheaper than throwing them away.

Bottle and can deposits are just more of the Left's favorite trick, putting a thumb on the scale of the economy to achieve their desired outcome, instead of letting the market take care of it.

And, DickieVeesHairdresser, got anything to say about the substance of the discussion, or are you just here to fling monkey poo?

Nice to see that the freak show still hangs around here. I can always count on the Sentinel message board to give insight into the dregs of humanity.

I'm with wildthing. Returning this stuff for a refund is ten times the hassle of just dumping it in the yellow cart

I expected better from the Sentinel than to uncritically repeat the lies of the enviro-wacko Left. This isn't a refund, it's a deposit. People don't like deposits for a very simple reason: they're a pain in the tuchis. The Left keeps trying to push this through, and it keeps getting shot down.

Calling it a "refund" is a lie to make it more palatable to the uninformed. While I expect this kind of mendacity from the Minneapolis Red Star-Tribune, the Sentinel should do better.

Just another revenue generator for the state. Ridiculous.

I will recycle ALL cans and bottles when those that sell them are REQUIRED to provide a refund ON-THE-SPOT. This is just another "makes me feel-good" proposal. Better use of funding might be to wean folks from the plastic water bottle...

So now when I'm out of town/state I'll have to stock up on beer and pop too?
