Getting 10 cents back for every can is really just encouraging alcoholism.

In Massachusetts and Maine, you pay a 5-cent deposit and get your 5 cents back when you return it. It's additional to the cost of whatever you're purchasing.
so i dunno about wherever it is you guys are from, but in massachusetts you only get 5 cents back
Took the words right out of my mouth 11:56... they're giving you your money back. Although, it is always a good day when you take a semester's worth of empties back and get a "free" case.
How does that encourage alcoholism? You realize you have to pay an extra 10 cents for every can when you buy it in the first place. You're just getting your 10 cents back when you recycle.
Which is bad because....?
10?? You only get 5 in NYC but only homeless people take the cans to get the change.
getting 10 cents back is really just encouraging homelessness...bum's are running rampant in michigan, breaking into houses in east lansing just to get some money to feed their heroin addictions...shits not cool
Who the fuck likes cans? Bottles rule the world!!!!
Uhhh it is called bringing them back so you don't have to pay for the deposit on the next rack.
Fuckin a.... Jersey doesn't get shit back and it's mandatory we recycle.
I met someone who made $6 off of this idea. Just by looking under his bed
The ONLY good thing about Michigan
I used to work in a scrap yard and there is nothing more discusting than a bag of beer cans! You can smell em from a mile away!
How. Fucking. True.
THIS SOUNDS LIKE GOOD OL' WEST VIRGINIA :)
Haha speaking of which I took back $40 worth of beer cans today
Michigan 10 cents per can, if the store sells it they must take it back. People in Michigan save cans for most of the year then take them back in bulk. Oh and the cost of soda/beer remains the same across the country, they don't add the cost on, that's just a myth. In fact a beer in California actually costs more than one in Michigan and you don't get crap back in California (by weight only).
They do charge a 10 cent deposit in Michigan. It's called a deposit for a reason. Look at your receipt some time and you'll see they they charge the deposit separately.
