Don't Trash Pure Michigan
May 25, 2012
Michigan Environmental Council opposes House Bill 5660, which proposes to amend Michigan's successful bottle bill
The legislation looks to exempt alcohol pouch containers from our 10-cent bottle deposit.
- One of the purposes of Michigan's very successful bottle deposit law is to prevent litter. This bill will increase the likelihood that these containers will end up litter.
- Passing this bill will encourage others to put their product in these containers that are harder to recycle. At least two states -- Maine and Vermont, and two Canadian Provinces -- British Columbia and Alberta, place a deposit on these containers.
