*Help Pass the Bottle Bill Update!
*
The Bottle Bill is the State's most successful recycling and litter
prevention program. Since the Bottle Bill's inception in 1983, over 35
billion containers have been redeemed, contributing to a healthier
environment, cleaner and safer communities, and a stronger economy. But to
keep up with the times and consumer tastes, the bottle bill must be updated.
An Updated Bottle Bill would expand our container deposit system to include
"new age" drinks such as non-carbonated beverages, water, iced tea, juice,
and sports drinks. It would decrease litter and increase recycling. It would
nearly double the number of containers that would be recycled. Nearly 200
cities and towns - in every corner of the state - have passed resolutions in
support of the Bottle Bill update.

Come to the State House to Show Your Support: Gather at the Beacon Street
side Wed. July 20, 2011, 9am.

Come to the Hearing: Wed. July 20, 2011, 10am, State House, Gardiner
