Bottle Fraud in Mich. May Face Harsher Penalties.

Attention smugglers of empty soda cans: Stay out of Michigan, or you could face jail time.

Lawmakers are taking aim at people who use out-of-state cans and bottles to cash in on Michigan's recycling refund, which pays 10 cents per container.

2. Apparently bottles/cans bought in Ohio have no deposit...

...but can be brought into Michigan for the 10 cent deposit. I don't understand why info as to where the purchase was made can't be included in the bar code.

3. All states should have bottle deposit.

I can't believe how many still don't. Not surprised Ohio's one of them though,
