H.175 – Modernize Bottle Bill

(Vote scored: Third Reading)

Pro-Environment vote: YES

A bill to expand the Bottle Bill to cover additional beverages like bottled water and wine bottles. This would keep an estimated 100 million more bottles and cans out of Vermont’s landfills and off roadsides every year. This bill would increase recycling and create green jobs, and is another step forward in our work to reduce plastic pollution.

Status: Passed the House 99-46, but stalled out before final enactment.
