As More Information Comes Out It Is Clear That Consumers Are Being Skinned
by Paul Hunt
In past posts we have shown that the State of California’s Recycling Program has cheated consumers in many ways, the latest being to destroy the network of their own sub-contractors and squeezing them until they were forced to close. Not only was RePlanet pushed out, but cities like Santa Monica also closed their entire recycling yard. We exposed their FRAUD in their own words and documents. And now another part of it has come to light.
This is regarding the aluminum cans. Although the State makes you pay five cents recycling deposit for each can, they make it very hard for you to return the can to get your money back. By gutting out the RePlanet and recycling centers, there are only a few places left to recycle cans. And now it is revealed that in the last few years THE CAN MANUFACTURERS HAVE MADE THE CANS THINNER AND LIGHTER. The figure is 40% thinner and lighter! This means that if you go to a recycling yard and turn in aluminum cans you will be paid by WEIGHT, now 40% LESS than years gone by. The only way to get your money back is to go to a place that will refund the CRV deposit completely, five cents per can, not by weight. But California is SO SORRY, almost all those places have been closed. Now they are talking it up in the CORRUPT State Legislature to RAISE the CRV price per can, SO THEY CAN CHEAT YOU OUT OF EVEN MORE MONEY!
You don’t have to go to a third world country to find corruption. Mass fraud and cheating is right here in California.
