    Default Oh When, Oh When Can I Bring My Cans Back

    Whitmer opened the retail stores in the U.P., but I'm still waiting to be able to return my cans. What a nightmare this is going to be when cans and bottles can finally be returned.

    Why the hate and name calling ? Its legit. Cans bottles are stacking up and there better be a plan in place. Because its going to be a huge problem.

    If cans and bottles are stacking up and it is a huge problem there is only one solution. You must obtain a non recyclable plastic bag. Drape it over your head and then tie it off around your neck. Problem solved. Second.

    There is no plan in place, Whitmer is continually working on extending the lock down....

    I am going to put mine on the curb Thursday morning and the City Truck will pick them up and bring them to the Recycle center.

    I don't see any problem here. Unless there is another stupid State Law somewhere.

    That includes all the Wisconsin Cans and Bottles we drank in Michigan last weekend.

    The hate towards those with a different view of things than yours is getting terrible on this discussion board. If you can't control yourself when you encounter a differing opinion, then maybe it's time to stay out of the discussion. Grow up already.

    Mich is one of ten states that still has a cans and bottles recycling program. Recycling cans and bottles is government funded job creation. It is cheaper to make then new. Minn got rid of this years ago. Now everything except steel, clean cardboard and clean aluminum goes into the landfill. They used to have a big sorting / washing machine out at the landfill here that had work stations for 10 people. No more. The ten people work somewhere else now and the big sorting machine got sold. Some fool in Michigan bought it I think. It might make some people think they are doing what is right and saving the environment and all but at this point most recycling is not cost effective. Throw your cans and bottles in the garbage if they are in your way. This is perhaps the biggest non issue I have ever heard of.

    Throwing cans and bottles in the garbage in MI is like, well , throwing money away. Because it is.

    I am assuming you pay some kind of an up front fee for can and bottle purchases in Mich. That you get back when you return the cans and bottles. Part of this is so that you don't throw your cans and bottles in the ditch. Which is good. Don't throw your cans and bottles in the ditch. But would it not be simpler to not pay your up front fee and not have to store your stinky cans and bottles until you got sick of looking at theem and they were in your way? Then your state could save bunch of money by not paying somebody to give the cans and bottles a ride on a fancy truck to the big washing machine facility that cost millions of dollars so a bunch of workers there could sort out the cans and bottles and end up throwing a large percentage in the gargage anyway. Then the cans can get crushed in an expensive crusher and be given a ride to the can-melter-down-facility that also cost a lot of money. They used to send a lot of the cans to China but China even figured out that it didn't pay to fool with them. The cleaned up bottles can go on another county owned truck to the plastic shredding facility which also costs a lot of money staffed by workers that make a pretty good wage by feeding the fancy plastic shredding machines. Then the shredded plastic goes on another truck to some other facility where they make somehting out of it. It is a stupid, expensive, complicated and unnecessary process. But that is what you are stuck with I guess. I do not throw cans and bottles in the ditch. I even pick up blown SkiDoo belts that I see on the side of the trail and transport them to the nearest garbage can. The people that throw cans and bottles in the ditch and throw blown belts in the woods would do this whether there was a deposit or not. Once again the many have to put up with a complicated process designed to get the few to dispose of garbage responsibly. Which will never happen anyway.

    MI pays a .10 cent deposit on each can or bottle when purchased. Oddly enough it applies only to carbonated drinks. Beer Pop mainly. Fruit drinks, juice, bottled water are not. So it adds up and piles up and now cant return.

    A lot of fundraisers collect empties thru the year and cash in for hundreds of dollars and depend on this money.
