I don't like people rifling through my trash -it is an invasion of my privacy and usually they're dragging little children around with them who SHOULD be in school. I paid the deposit for my cans ...something I didn't have to pay in AZ and I'll get the reimbursement ... otherwise, it yet another tax that I pay. Everything in CA is more expensive ... this is my way of keeping as much of my earnings as I can ... I don't care if it's $1, $10 or $100 ... it's the priniciple ... amazing also that as soon as I cross the state line back into AZ, gas prices decrease by more than 50 cents a gallon. CA is an amazing state...we should protest the fleecing of the working and taxpaying citizens of CA.

that's because we have taxes added to the gas price for maintenance of roads and such. In other places, they have to pay tolls. It all works out to pretty much the same.

And the deposit is supposed to be a DEPOSIT, as in you pay and you can get it back if you return the item. If you weren't paying it in AZ, then the store or manufacturer was absorbing the cost. There's no free lunch!

As of Nov.1, 2013 The guy running the local recycling place on Whitsett/Burbank Ave. In North Hollywood says they no longer take non 'CRV' glass (ie. wine bottles etc.) and that he says it is doubtful that there are any places left in LA that do pay for these.
We don't even have blue bins here so I will have to figure out where to put them.
