i think it's better to have a refundable deposits on all bottles, as we have in South Australia.

South Australia's container deposit scheme was introduced in 1977 and has been very effective for reducing litter, increasing resource recovery and reducing waste going to landfill.
There is a 10 cent deposit and refund on most beverage containers in South Australia, check the label if the deposit/refund applies.

Beverages containers of less than one litre that have a 10 cent deposit are:
flavoured milk
fruit juice.

Beverage containers up to and including three litres that have a 10 cent deposit are:
water – plain, still or carbonated
carbonated soft drinks
non-carbonated soft drinks including:
vitamin drinks
sport drinks
iced teas
alcoholic cider
beers/ales/stouts
flavoured alcoholic beverages with a wine or spirit base (RTDs).

There's upward of 60 recycle centres throughout the state.

Thanx dear Cher
