So corporate lobbyists for the grocery industry did their magic and lowered the limit stores have to accept to 24 if they provide a drop box. The law says "a dealer redemption center must be available for persons to return beverage containers to the dealer redemption center during any time that a participating dealer is open between the hours of 8 a.m. and 8 p.m." but guess what? About 3 out of 4 times, I go to Fred Meyer on Hawthorne or Glisan/60th, it's so freaking full that I have to go back another time or go to a different spot. I know a whole lot of people have been frustrated with it but this isn't getting better. Things have been hard during the pandemics and this just isn't right.
