    Sept. 12 — Coca-Cola still opposes bottle deposit measures despite a report that said the company is softening its stance.

    A report by As You Sow, an environmental advocacy group based in San Francisco, said Coca-Cola was now neutral on a “voluntary container deposit system administered by associated industries.”

    Despite the report, Coca-Cola confirmed that it is still against “forced” deposit fees and would rather see an emphasis on curbside collection.

    “Coca-Cola´s position regarding container deposit legislation has not changed, we oppose forced deposit legislation,” the company said in a statement. “We actively support initiatives to get consumers to recycle more and waste less. Comprehensive recycling programs, like curbside collection, are a more convenient and sustainable solution for solid waste recovery than programs that single out one product, such as forced deposit programs.”
