By Steve Scauzillo | PUBLISHED: April 24, 2019 at 4:27 pm | UPDATED: April 25, 2019 at 12:57 pm Recycling just keeps getting harder to do. As neighborhood recycling centers close, consumers may turn to supermarkets, drug and convenience stores to redeem their plastic and glass bottles and aluminum cans for their cash value. However, a consumer group found that even though the state recycling agency lists some 3,800 stores as buyback locations, many may not be aware they are supposed to accept empties and return deposits. Some are flat out refusing. In a targeted audit of about 50 stores in West Los Angeles and the west San Fernando Valley, two-thirds refused to take consumers’ empty cans and bottles as required, failing to recycle.

By John Woolfolk | [email protected] | Bay Area News Group PUBLISHED: January 20, 2019 at 6:30 am | UPDATED: January 21, 2019 at 1:09 am As lawmakers push to toughen gun sale rules amid outrage over random mass shootings like the November massacre at a Thousand Oaks country music bar, a new federal study says few criminals who had a gun bought it from a retailer. According to the January special report by the U.S. Department of Justice’s Bureau of Justice Statistics, about one in 10 state and federal prisoners convicted of crimes involving a firearm said they got the weapon through a retail source like a sporting goods store, pawn shop or gun show. Both sides in the debate over toughening gun laws said the study, based on interviews with 20,064 state and 4,784 federal prisoners, supports their argument.
