This forum seemed about as close as any for a bottle bill question. I'll start by saying that I'm always very much in favor of recycling. In that spirit, I pay a monthly fee for curbside recycling in Knoxville. We recycle just about everything and compost most of the rest.

I don't understand how curbside recycling will tie in with the bottle bill. I'll pay the 5 cent deposit, but wouldn't get the deposit back when I recycle curbside. Therefore it seems like I'll be paying twice (deposit plus curbside fee) for the same service. Can anyone explain how these two services will work together? I'm already trying to do the right thing, but don't want to get charged twice.
