Reimagining the Bottle Bill

Providing stakeholders with data analysis on high-performing deposit system design principles which deliver environmental and cost benefits to individual states and the region as a whole.

Every year in the US, $5.1 billion in valuable and reclaimable beverage containers — glass, metal, and plastic — are lost to litter, incinerators, and landfills.

Fortunately, there is a well-developed, cost-effective intervention that already works: the bottle bill. Bottle bills establish deposit return systems that incentivise both producers and consumers to recycle containers, and have been used for decades in multiple states and countries all over the world.
