California Officials Investigate Recycle Fraud

Just over 8.5 billion recyclable cans were sold in California last year. Almost as many were redeemed for a nickle under California's recycling law. Government officials think the state's recycling program has led to rampant fraud - with Nevada residents partially to blame. Since Nevada doesn't have a redemption law, people are taking truckloads of cans across the border to redeem them in California. But the state is now cracking down on the fraud.
