business news in context, analysis with attitude

The CBC reports that the New Brunswick Solid Waste Association is urging provincial officials to impose a deposit on all paper cups, hoping that such a move would cut back on refuse that has become a blight on the Canadian landscape.

The initiative would have retailers that sell coffee in paper cups charging a nickel or dime more per cup, and then refunding the money if people brought the cups back in to be recycled.

It is hard to fault the motivation, but this sounds like a bureaucratic and operational nightmare.
