It's working in CA. My kids collected bottles and there are even professional recyclers. Some cities have mixed collection bins, Mine had 4 bins. Trash, green waste, mixed recycle and CRV. Several non-profits have collection centers people will donate bottles. It has helped reduce litter.

California has a problem, it is getting back about 105% of the bottles, cans that the deposit is charged on. People are trucking them in from other states and redeeming them in CA.

I liked the old 8 pack cartons of 16 ounce bottles we used to get. They were phased out in the mid 1980's, but we would take the empties back to the grocery and redeem them for a few nickels and dimes. There was an area near the back of the grocery where they all sat, waiting to go back to the bottler to be washed and refilled. I always have liked the flavor of the soft drink better in glass bottles, too.

We have co-mingled recycling here. Everything recyclable just goes in the blue bin and it is sorted later.

Used to like R White's Cream Soda for years. Relocating, couldn't find it on sale here for a long time. When they eventually started selling it here, it was in plastic bottles, the taste was not to my liking :-(

We had a startup that died in the 80's, The Pop Shoppe. You would buy a case of generic soda in glass bottles and paid a deposit once. From then on you just returned the empties and took a new case. You could mix and match as much as you wanted.
Wow it looks like they are trying to make a come back.

Plastic seems to ruin sodas, so the makers made changes, of course no matter what is done, some sodas still taste bad in plastic, diet especially, yuck.

If some company returned to using glass bottles, I would certainly pay a premium to have the original taste back. That premium would also benefit the enviroment - less plastic.

Out here in California and most of the south west, we have that choice. We can buy soda in glass, plastic, or aluminum. We even have Coke imported from Mexico. in glass bottles that is true to the original recipe.

We get all those choices here, too; even Mexican Sprite, but the bottles are little. I just wish they still distributed soft drinks in the 16 ounce glass returnables.

The aliens made me do it.................

" Inphachack admitted setting the house on fire and causing the damage. He said the previous owners were trying to kill him, but did not know the home bought by someone else.

Inphachack said he has an alien virus from outer space, they altered his DNA including changing his height and that is why he spray painted the word on the home. He also said the aliens were making him upset. The criminal complaint says he says tried to burn the porch, but the aliens used black magic to undo it. "

Police: Man claims aliens made him vandalize Sheboygan home.

If all goes according to plan, the helium balloons will provide emergency LTE cellular reception to local governments and residents, allowing them to contact family and friends.


They still need a telecom partner to make it work.
