Re: E-M:/ Bottle-return debate

Both the pros and cons of Michigan's current system are many and varied.  There are many variations on the bottle deposit - return theme that have been used elsewhere that could improve Michigan's system.  The half-back system combined with redemption centers, such as the one at work in Nova Scotia, is but one example.  Unfortunately, most of those models will require a sea change in how we conduct such business and probably not in the cards.  As such, the penny plan offers the next best solution to a legitimate problem.
