In related news, the British government is considering requiring a 10 pence fee on plastic bottles, which could be refunded when recycled.

CAW and Marine Debris:

  • CAW is sponsoring SB 1625 (Corbett), which will expand California's Container Recycling Law ("CRV") to include all plastic bottles, and other previously exempt categories.
  • CAW is also sponsoring AB 2058 (Levine), which will require retailers reduce plastic bag distribution.
