I have seen way, way too many plastic water bottles and other beverage containers in Texas streams, creeks, bayous, bays, and gulf, including a plastic water bottle stuck in the throat of a pelican skeleton. These wastes are actually valuable resources that can be reused, if collected and returned to various industries. Beverage container deposits have proven to be an effective incentive to return these materials to the market place. It's time for Texas to take advantage of this "nest egg" on the ground!
