I recently noticed that the lines of people, each with several large bags of plastic bottles, have pretty much disappeared from these local machines. Turns out that the automated machines no longer accept plastic bottles, just aluminum cans and glass bottles. You can still recycle and get money for the plastic bottles, you just have to have the attendant weigh them for you.
I wonder why this change was made and how people will react. Will they continue to use this rePlanet, go somewhere else or just recycle less?
