No I kind of wish they did. I grew up in Massachusetts that is how my brother and I got a little money to spend when we were young.

We save ours for the gas tank, we fill up trash bags and store them in the shed we cash in about $20 every few months.

No.  When we lived in NY in the 80's they did.  I hated it.  We recycle anyway.

 no but we have drop off area's that you can take empty cans too (soda mostly).  When I was younger we'd take empty glass bottles and trade them for money to get cokes/candy...back in the 70's.

no ,I remember bottle deposits as a kid.We do recycle several things including cans.When a kid becomes old enough to drive I encourage them to drop off the cans and keep the money.
