Letter: It’s time to raise the bottle returns

Time to raise bottle return

It is time, prices being what they are and with so many desperate people on the fringes nowadays, to raise the bottle deposit to 25 cents.

It won’t cost any more for the people who return their bottles, and it is the only income of a lot of desperate people. At five cents, they can’t pack enough bottles to buy a bowl of soup. I don’t want them snooping around my place to find something to keep themselves from starving to death.
