Man faces prison after allegedly trying to deposit 10,000 bottles in Michigan

In a memorable episode of Seinfeld, two characters hatch a plot: instead of returning bottles in New York for a 5-cent refund, round up a load of containers and run them to Michigan, where the return is double, at 10 cents each.

:ohmy:

I can't imagine returning 10,000 bottles. I don't like returning them at all so I give them away.
That's some dirty work. He should be praised by the "green" crowed for saving the environment.

we always recycle our bottles and cans. nevermind homeless. actually the homeless in our city collects over $65 to 80 dollars worth of stuff so they are well off. unlike them, we can only collect as much as 15.00 thats pitiful
