    I would say this is not aimed at the people who already recycle but at those that don't, anyone that lives near (or passes by) a school, shopping centre or playing grounds will know exactly what I mean.

    It is aimed at those that throw the bottle/can away without thinking.

    The thing is - the people who just chuck away empty bottles or cans once they've drunk the contents aren't likely to be the people who think about recycling responsibly.

    These are the people who drop a 5p or 10p coin and can't be bothered to pick it up.
    It may raise additional revenue (for somebody) but it won't cure the problem.
