No Return to No Deposit Days

A Tennessee lawmaker is planning a trip to Maine to promote a bottle deposit bill in his state.

Maine's bottle bill was enacted in 1976, implemented in 1978, and has since become part of the landscape. A much cleaner landscape, it should be added. The bill has substantially reduced the amount of roadside litter in Maine, and substantially increased the recycling rate for beverage containers.
