Bottle Bill “Not Dead Yet”

The Salem Gazette (June 21, 2012) reports:

Supporters of an expansion to the Bottle Bill, Massachusett’s 30-year-old recycling deposit law, pledged to keep the pressure on Beacon Hill after the bill was killed for the 13th year in a row.

“We’re working with members of the Sierra Club and MassPIRG, who are leaders in these sorts of fights, to encourage legislators to fight for this expansion,” said Pat Gozemba, co-chair of the Salem Alliance for the Environment. “People have been bringing this bill to the state house for 13 years, and if we need to we’ll bring it for a 14th as well.”
