    It appears it is illegal to take beverage containers and bottles to Maine to get a refund from another state. Remember the episode where Kramer and Newman try to take a load to Michigan. Some real life individuals where charged for doing this into Maine. Never knew it was illegal. I knew smuggling smokes were illegal but containers!

    What is it, like 5 cents per bottle? Someone from New Yawk with a regular trash-bag full would probably break-even when you consider gas.

    Good episode though. :lol:

    These 2 people had 100,000 bottles and cans, worth over $10,000.
