[GreenYes] Re: SRO sign-ons to Jeffords EPR bill support letter
<<
From: "Wayne Turner" <WAYNET@cityofws.org>
Does anyone know how many and which state recycling 
organizations are publicly supporting Senator Jeffords 
National Bottle Deposit Bill?  I haven't heard anything yet 
from our own SRO but have just inquired. 
>>

Wayne, 

So far, three recycling organizations have signed on to the 
letter supporting Senator Jeffords' National Beverage 
Producer Responsibility Act, S. 2220:  California Resource 
Recovery Association, the Chicago Recycling Association 
and New York City Waste Prevention Coalition.  

The sign-on letter will go out tomorrow, so there is still a 
little time to get on before it goes out.  But we will be 
looking for endorsements beyond today and beyond the 
hearings on July 11th, SO PLEASE KEEP ORGANIZATIONAL 
ENDORSEMENTS COMING.  We hope you'll agree that it is 

important that the recycling community speak up loudly.
Please forward info to zerowaste@grrn.org. 

Below is the list of 46 national, state and local organizations 
and businesses that have signed on as of yesterday:
