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?

ned says: the government put the drinks up the day before the new legislation came in they were to go up 10c but went up more. We pay more to get back the price rise at the depot nothing in it for the people once again. We live in hervey bay and you have to travel and leave your bag of bottles and trust they count it properly because they are not always maned.
