National Bottle Bill


A national container deposit return program would create a simple system for the public to recycle their containers at stores, return centers, and reverse vending machine locations. This system reduces litter, creates jobs, increases the availability of recycled materials, and reduces impacts on the environment with proven policy. Saving resources saves money and protects natural spaces.

  • 75% of Americans support a bottle bill deposit program where they live but only 24% of Americans live in a state with a bottle deposit program. This legislation will fill the gap and cut litter in half in our country
