Jun 19 - Milk Added to Alberta Bottle Bill

Milk bottles in Alberta will be included in the Canadian province's beverage container recycling program starting Monday. Albertans will pay a deposit ranging from 10-25 cents which will be returned to them when they recycle the containers.

While there is no proposal pending in California to add Milk containers to the recycling program, a statewide poll indicated that 60% of Californians supported adding paper milk cartons to the recycling program and 73% supported adding plastic milk jugs.

More than 74% of beverage containers covered by the California program are recycled, while less than 25% of milk containers are recycled.
