(WTNH) — Governor Malloy is looking to raise the deposit on bottles and cans from a nickel to a dime, according to the Connecticut Post.
Officials say the number of bottle and can returns have dropped.
Every year, the State of Connecticut gets $31 million from bottles and cans that people never return.
Governor Malloy says raising the deposit to 10 cents would bring in $12 million more per year.
Environmental officials believe more people would return bottles and cans if the deposit was raised.
