Thursday's news from counties across the state.
NYSAC
New York State's Bottle Bill
The New York State “Bottle Bill” has been the state's most effective recycling and litter prevention program. The law requires a 5-cent deposit on containers holding certain kinds of beverages. After consumption, empty containers can be recycled and redeemed through their return at designated stations in retail stores or redemption centers. With an average return rate of over 70% and more than 90 billion beverage containers returned and recycled since its enactment in 1982, the Bottle Bill has kept millions of tons of plastic, metal, and glass out of the state's waste stream with no cost to local governments.
 
For more, see the NYSAC Report on the Bottle Bill.
