Boston's Mayor Menino Calls for Bottle Bill Update

Boston Mayor Tom Menino held a press conference today in which he called on Massachusetts legislators to eliminate the loophole that allows bottles containing non-carbonated beverages to go without redemption value.

To demonstrate this point, the photo at left shows two identical plastic bottles.  One contains a carbonated beverage and will be worth 5-cents when empty.  The other contains a non-carbonated beverage and will be worthless trash when empty.
