[greenyes] National Beverage Producer Responsibility Act of 2003 (USA)
Please email your respective legislators in the
United States !


> National Beverage Producer Responsibility
> Act of 2003

       The National Beverage Producer
> Responsibility Act of 2003 introduced by U.S.
> Senator Jim Jeffords (I-VT) was based on a
> similar bill introduced in 2002. It provides a
> new approach to container recycling that
> addresses concerns of the industry stakeholders
> without compromising the public interest. 
> 
>       The Act sets a performance standard (80%
> recovery, the level currently achieved in most
> of the 10 bottle bill states) which industry
> must meet, but allows industry the freedom to
> design the most efficient deposit-return
> program to reach the standard. By providing
> beverage companies the flexibility to structure
> and operate their own container recovery
> programs, this legislation simply extends the
> beverage company?s ?supply chain? to include
> the management of empty containers after
> consumption. This approach is appealing because
> it reduces the administrative burden on
> government and takes full advantage of the
> business acumen of industry. 
> 
>       TAKE ACTION!     (Contact your state's
> senators and representatives.)
