Oberweis Dairy is defending a decision to increase the deposit fee for its milk bottles. The North Aurora-based dairy recently increased the deposit fee from 85-cents to a $1.50 per bottle.

Oberweis officials tell ABC7's news partner, 'The Daily Herald,' that the increase is designed to keep its company environmentally friendly. The higher deposit fee helps ensure that customers return the milk bottles so they can be reused, according to the company.

Deposit refunds are issued as bottles are returned.
