Lawmaker proposes expanding Michigan’s bottle billPosted on June 16, 2013 by DrRossH in Plastic Limiting Regulations
These bottle deposit schemes are very effective. The are simple and work to get recycling from the low teens to over 80% in every jurisdiction they are in place. They are good for the people to have a pollution free environment, good for the environment to be rid of this litter. Most or it is plastic which will not biodegrade away. Even though the drink companies fight them very hard, they do not understand these schemes are good for them too. Every time you see a Coke bottle on the ground it puts you off Coke that one bit more as it makes you realise they are a company who does not care enough about out environment.
Plus these schemes create a number of green jobs to run the required infrastructure and that is good too.
Why doesn’t every state have this in place?
