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

Every time I go there I have to wait in line to do just a few small bags when everybody else has large bags and spends the whole day there either stop that build a new bottle stop for other people that don't spend the whole day there this town is growing too fast for that little spot

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.

It's hard to feel patriotic when a small percentage of people enforce laws on women, jeopardizing their lives. The "Supreme Court" is a joke. Now families will fall sick from polluted air and water without the safety net of regulations, jeopardizing our future for the profiteering of big companies.
