Apr 19 - Bill to Protect Against Seinfield-like Bottle Scams
Submitted by Recycling News on April 19, 2012 - 11:43.
Bloomberg Businessweek highlighted that a Seinfield reference was made in a bill analysis on AB 1933, a bill that would require anyone who imports bulk amounts of recyclable containers into California to report where they came from. In the 1996 "Seinfeld" episode, Kramer and Newman hatched a plan to drive a truckload of cans and bottles to Michigan, because the redemption fee there was 10 cents, double New York's nickel deposit.
Support for the bill has been strong. AB 1933 passed its first policy and fiscal committee unanimously.
