Blauvelt Beverage Bottler Big Busted in Bottle Bill Bamboozle

A Blauvelt beverage company has agreed to pay $4.3 million in a civil case with the state for boosting the number of bottle returns it had, leading the state pay out nearly $2 million dollars extra from 2013 to 2016.

The alleged scam was first brought to the state’s attention by a whistleblower, who stands to collect about a million dollars.
