MANCHESTER, Iowa — The owner of an eastern Iowa recycling business is accused of cheating customers who turned in cans and bottles to get back their deposit money.

Delaware County court records say 39-year-old Greg Rogers, of Manchester is charged with theft. His attorney didn’t immediately return a call Thursday from the Associated Press.

The records say Rogers owns Can Do Too Redemption Center in Manchester. A criminal complaint says Rogers stole more than $10,000 from customers by not paying them or not paying them the correct amount for item redemption.

Iowa law says consumers must pay 5-cent deposits on bottled or canned beverages and can then take the containers back to a store or redemption center to get back their deposits. Beverage distributors pay redemption centers 6 cents per item returned.
