WRSE supports the expansion of the Bottle Bill

Our Massachusetts Legislature has been sitting on the updated Bottle Bill for 15 years, and it is the single most effective way to get plastic bottles out of our trash, off our streets, and into recycling. Eighty percent of bottles covered under the current Bottle Bill are recycled, as opposed to less than 20 percent for those not. We need to add plastic water bottles and sports drink bottles to the Bottle Bill. Please click here to send your message to our legislators that we want a yes vote on this bill in June.
