When I was a child the bottles we got our 'pop' in had a 3d deposit on them. Does anyone know when this system stopped. Perhaps it could be reintroduced.
Collecting bottles used to be a good way of supplementing ones pocket money.

Likewise with jamjars I think, though these could also be exchanged for \"treasures\" from the rag & bone man!
What happened to him??

Sadly I fear that in todays convinence life style that such usefull and good systems are perhaps forever gone...

It doesn\'t have to be this way. With the \"green\" issues on the rise again perhaps it is time for this profitable and dare I say clean element of the past to come back.
