You can only turn in 5 green bag per quarter, that means you can only have about 500 can every three months and a family have a lot more than 500 can or bottles in three months it not right that you can’t turn you and in whenever you get the bags full and if you do more than 5 your money locked up

I have enough space 2 store about $2.00 worth of containers @ home. There needs 2 be an Express machine only 4 people with <$7.50 worth in a day. Spending 2.5 or 3 hours of my time (including transportation) to claim $2 is like sweatshop wages. There4, I have stopped redeeming containers entirely.

Kids spend way too much time on phones. They need to concentrate on reading, writing and arithment which schools need to go back to teaching. I believe social media has harmed our children.

There are so many families who can't afford to pay for lunches whether it is hot or cold. I think this is going to be so helpful. ❤️

Why give all the free meals to the ungrateful bums that live of free handouts but refuse to work for it. Feed our kids.
