CT Council on Environmental Quality Releases Bottle Bill Report
Hartford, CT - - In a special report, “Low Deposit, Low Return” the State’s Council on Environmental Quality documents the relationship between the deposit fee on beverage containers and the rate at which those containers are returned. The report projects that based on the experience of other states, a five-cent increase could raise beverage container redemptions by, at least, fifty percent above the current level. The report also calls for DEEP to assess the true cost of the collecting, storing, and shipping redeemed beverage containers; and recommend to the Legislature an appropriate increase in the handling fee to benefit retailers and redemption centers. If you'd like to see this report, drop us a note at email@example.com and we'll send you a copy.
