NY bottle deposits likely

This article was originally published in Foodnews

NEW York State may expand its deposit system on beverage bottles, after years of seeing such legislation blocked in the Senate. The current law, more than 25 years old, imposes a US$0.05 surcharge on carbonated beverage bottles. Environmentalists have long pushed to expand that law to include non-carbonated beverages. The state governor wants unclaimed deposits to go to the Environmental Protection Fund. A compromise plan could divert that money to beverage companies, according to Associated Press.
