Refunds not available

Since we buy bottles of water, cans of soda and occasionally fancy milk in bottles that require a deposit that is refundable upon return, has our local government failed us since this money is now no longer refundable locally? 

These bottles and cans are now going in Alameda County Industries’ recycle bins and no one is collecting the refunds, or at least not those of us paying the bill.
