>Israel's Can & Bottle Deposit Law went into effect on October 1, 2001.
>
>The law requires that a deposit equivalent to 5 cents is levied on each
>glass or plastic bottle, or metal container. Exceptions apply to small
>containers (less than 100 ml.) or those of 1.5 liters and up, as well as
>milk containers. The collection and recycling of containers will be handled
>by a non-profit corporation set up for the purpose by industrialers,
>retailers and importers. The Ministry of Environment has set a target for
>the first twelve months of 50% collection-recycling, to increase by 10% each
>year thereafter.
>
>Over eight years have passed since the law was first proposed as a Private
>Member's Bill.  IUED and the Forum for the Deposit Law have worked together
>throughout this period in drafting, re-drafting, and promoting the law.
