Bottle Bills Create More Opportunities to Recycle
In 2001, over 150 million Americans did not have access to curbside recycling.
Deposits, because they do not depend on municipal recycling systems, also provide an opportunity to recycle away from the home, in public places (offices, malls, parks, stadiums, etc.) that have inadequate recycling opportunities.
