Then you bring them and they scan them to be sure you didnít bring in foreign cans from say, Florida-LOL! So someone has to manage all of that-do they get a cut? I mean how would it be worth their time. And how much, a penny? Then I guess they go to scrap at some point, or do they go back to original company that made them? Just crazy. How many of you just throw them away and say eff it? So glad we donít have that in Flori-DUH!í

ETA: wasnít drinking cans at the wedding, they were bottles! Cans were rest of trip.
I wish we had bottle and can deposits in Florida. I am one of the very few responsible people here who recycles them but gets nothing back. No way am I just throwing them in the trash.
