Bottle recycling

Just wondering what others' thoughts are on this. In Brisbane and surrounding areas a new bottle recycling system has just started up a couple of day ago wherein you take your empty bottles to certain depots and get ten cents back on each bottle. This morning I went to the supermarket and purchased a couple of my normal Woolworths soft drinks which normally cost 75 cents. Today I found they have gone up to 90 cents. Another lady was complaining about it and said the extra 15 cents is apparently to help run the depots. So now we all pay more for drinks, more for fuel to get to these depots (the closest to me is about 15 minutes drive) and we already pay the Council for our recycle bins. I will be putting my bottles where I usually put them, in the recycle bin. What do others think?
