An Iowa law passed in 1978 is being revisited by the Iowa legislature.
When it was passed, it's intent was to decrease litter instead of increasing recycling. Today, the "Bottle Bill" mandates a five cent refund on bottles and cans recycled in Iowa. If passed, the update would raise that amount to 10 cents per bottle. Metro Waste Authority Director Tom Hadden says an increase would go a long way.
