New York State Assembly has passed a measure to expand the bottle bill for New York State. The article, written by Elisabeth Ponsot for the Queens Examiner, goes on to explain:
The new program expands the current five-cent deposit system to include non-carbonated beverages like bottled water, iced tea, sports drinks and juices. It also requires unclaimed deposits to be turned over from distributors and bottlers to the state. The revenue will be used to fund and support environmental programs.
