Bottle Bill Approved!

1 03 2009

Last Thursday, February 26, the bottle bill in Connecticut was expanded to include a $.05 deposit on plastic water bottles! The idea to expand the bottle bill has been around for a few years, but was seriously considered only recently because it could potentially generate much-needed revenue for the state.

In theory, the bill will produce revenue because many people don’t bother to return their recyclables for the deposit. In this case the state collects the unclaimed deposits.
