Nope. Didn't you read the article that Thirstyone posted? At least one state caps the deposit that a brewer (keg owner) may charge.
Who regulates trash heaps currently? Whoever does that can add this to their list. There should be no arrests just summons' and/or fines. Having this in place will eliminate heap owners from collecting them illegally. Aren't these auditers are already paid by their agencies?
Yes I read the article and know the information. My point is that the average person who buys beer in a keg figures that the deposit is worth the keg. How much incentive is it for someone to lose $12 dollars?
All I am saying is that if it wasn't for this forum, I would never have been interested in learning this information and would never have known about this law unless it smacked me in the face. Even the store employees were not aware of this until I took the keg back to them and told them about it.
Point: Less those who steal kegs for money, more infromation should be readily available to the public.
