Reduce community litter with a new bottle deposit

When my wife and I go for a walk we bring plastic bags along so we can pick up litter. Last week our daughter came to town so we decided to show her Pioneer Park. We collected five grocery bags full of bottles, cans, and other litter. They were all over the place. They were back in the bushes and along the river banks. What a disgrace.

If we had a deposit on beverage containers like Oregon we wouldn’t have to put up with this mess.
