Legislature Passes Plastic Pallet Bill

Posted by on March 26th, 2013 with Comments Off

IMG_0979On Tuesday, SB 75 passed the House 101-18, after previously passing the Senate 40-0. The bill prohibits a recycler from purchasing plastic bulk merchandise containers without obtaining and recording information about the seller. Two exemptions are included in this prohibition: less than 5 containers are being sold or the containers are deposited voluntarily by a resident or commercial entity without receipt of payment to the customer. The Governor has 10 business days to sign the bill once he receives it.
