    RPCC Supports Environmental Tax Cut Proposed for Farmers, Retailers

    WASHINGTON, Aug. 10 -/E-Wire/-- The Reusable Pallet and Container
    Coalition (RPCC), a trade association of companies in the reusable
    packaging industry, has announced its strong support for the
    environmental tax incentive bill to promote business conversion from
    disposable pallets and cardboard boxes to reusable pallets and plastic
    containers introduced by Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA) and Rep. Bob
    Matsui (D-CA) on July 20. The bill, HR 4916 or the Landfill Reduction
    Act of 2000, allows farmers, retailers, manufacturers and poolers of
    reusable plastic or wooden pallets and plastic containers to write-off
    the cost of capital investments to convert to these environmentally-
    superior products.
