Re: [greenyes] Results of Opinion Poll in NY Released

I'm among the 14% who don't think beverage producers should be taxed to clean up after environmental problems that they did not create.

I can support transferring unclaimed deposits directly to cities and towns that collect waste -- because it is they who are picking up the unreturned containers. This is a feature, as I recall, of the Jeffords bottle bill - when returns slip below a certain level the unclaimed deposits are transferred to local governments.
