Creating deposit on aluminum cans and juice boxes, creation of depos for returning bottles

Too many containers are still ending up in the landfill as there is no real incentive for consumers to recycle other than out of good will. An incentive system similar to that found in Alberta would be developed, whereby a deposit would be charged on all bottles, cans and juice boxes that are sold. The deposits would be redeemed when consumers take them to local bottle depos.
