Why are there recycling and deposit when buying beverage?

I bought a smoothie and it was Fing 5 dollars, plus there are two recycling and deposit charge. What is that about? It is not that, even alcohol have these charges and it don't look that much but it adds up. So if I want to return it, do I get ALL that back or just the deposit?

    The deposit is a great incentive for recycling because there is a value put on the merchandise - people will pick it up and return it for the money. I am not sure what the recycling charge is, but in Michigan we have a deposit on carbonated beverages and I wish they would make it broader to include water, juice and all alcohol bottles.
