Letter to the editor: How about recycling?

Thursday, September 26, 2013 - 12:01 am

Michigan and a couple of other states have a recycling program that is a bottle-deposit program.

Here is how it works: When you purchase Pepsi or another bottled or canned beverage, you pay an extra 10 cents (in Michigan), and when you take it to a participating recycling center, then, when you return the empty can or bottle, you get your 10 cents back.

This could potentially keep trash off the sidewalks. Often I will walk downtown Fort Wayne and there will be broken glass on the sidewalk. This could keep the sidewalks cleaner and safer.
