I’ve made a decent chunk of change over the years at parties and over events where I bothered to place a bin to collect empty bottles and cans. After sorting through my pile of plastic nickels there would always be worthless empty water bottles. They just stared at you and laughed.
“HA! We’re not worth anything and you still took the time to sort us!”
Those unredeemable pieces of plastic are so annoying aren’t they? Ug. Well, it looks like they will stay that way for another year.
BOSTON — A proposal to expand the state’s bottle bill to include bottles that contain water, iced tea and other non-carbonated beverages has hit a roadblock at the State House.
The legislative committee reviewing the bill voted to send it to a study committee. Few bills sent to study committees ever emerge. The Legislature’s formal session ends July 31.
