NYS Legislative Hearing On Improving The Bottle Bill
On October 22, the NYS Legislature held a hearing on expanding the bottle bill, which was first enacted in 1982. The proposals include increasing the 5-cent deposit to 10 cents and including more types of beverage containers. We hear from Rhonda Keyser of the Brooklyn Solid Waste Advisory Board; Alexis Goldsmith of Beyond Plastics; Blair Horner of NYPIRG; and Kent Sopiris of the NYS Association of Convenience Stores.
