As of February 6th, the beer store across Ontario, Canada are paying 10 to 20cents per bottle. The place i work, there are a lot of rich people who only indulge in wines and really don't care about recycling. So a friend and i decided to collect all the bottle and return it for the deposit. So far we have made Can $ 120.00 in a month. This money is put into a special account that we opened. This money will be going to the Sick Children's hospital at the end of the year. I started doing this because we get a huge bonus for Christmas and thought that kids who are terminally ill should get a chance to do whatever they like before they are taken away. So how many of you recycle bottles? Would you like to do it for charity?

Good for you. The Children's Hospital certainly deserves to get your generous donation. I hope more people will do something like you are doing.

Thank you linda. I am hoping the same. The total amount the government will be paying out with this program is about 15million. That is a lot of money, and wish this would go to the charity.
