Water Bottles Now Have Value

Dear Editor,

Yesterday, I saw my first water bottle with a New York deposit. It was a sweet moment after years of advocating for the nickel deposit on non-carbonated beverages. We didn't get the whole enchilada, i.e., the deposit on iced tea, juice, and sports drinks, but we got the most popular drink - water. The ubiquitous Poland Spring bottle in the gutter or on the beach will become a thing of the past. The bottle has value now and someone, either the buyer or the gleaner, will redeem that bottle.
