AB 2718 (Adams, 2009-10) Reducing Opportunities to Recycle

AB 2718 (Adams) would reduce opportunities to recycle by exempting supermarkets from current requirements to redeem beverage containers in-store if the supermarket is unserved by a recycling center.

Position and Status.
CAW opposes. This bill died with the close of the legislative session. AB 2718 was introduced Feb 19.

Supermarkets are currently required to be served by a nearby recycling center or are required to redeem beverage containers in-store.  AB 2718 (Adams) would exempt unserved supermarkets from this requirement and would reduce opportunities to recycle.
