kinda makes sense, we just don't really have a problem here in germany with bottles or stuff lying around, but i think the reason for that may be that we have, äh, lets call it a deposit on most bottles.DanielBrown said:It benefits those who aren't drinking and the streets/parks from littering. At least here I believe it's to have a nicer envieroment in the many public parks we got. The pubs here also require certain licensing to let customers drink outside their door(while out smoking or if they have an out-door area).Amaror said:Might if i ask were that's illegal? Sounds like a pretty silly law to me. I don't see any way how that would benefit anyone ever. With that dollar purchasing thing i can at least see how that benefits the government, but this i just cannot grasp.
it means you pay a few cents more when you buy the drink, but get it back when you return the empty bottle.
Now most drunk people don't do that, but there are quite a few homeless people that earn quite a bit of money just collecting those bottles and returning them. so that way parks and stuff stays relatively clean.
