  Report: Californians lose on recycle deposits, but number of recycling centers declines

SAN JOSE, California (AP) – California's largest recycling redemption operator has laid off and laid off 750 employees.

Mercury News reports on Monday that the company RePlanet has closed all 284 centers.

RePlanet's President David Lawrence states that the company stopped operating due to increased business costs and falling prices for recycled aluminum and PET plastics.

The trip comes three years after RePlanet shut down 191 of the recycling centers and laid off nearly 300 employees.

Lawyers are urging the state to reform how it subsidizes recycling centers. They worry that now more recyclables will end up in landfills.
