Maryland container deposit law to be introduced

By Editorial Staff, Resource Recycling

A key state legislator plans to introduce a bottle bill in Annapolis, after the General Assembly reconvenes Jan. 9.

Democratic House member Maggie McIntosh says she and fellow House members will propose a nickel refundable deposit on beverage containers. McIntosh chairs the House Environmental Matters Committee. Local retailers would not be required to redeem the bottles. Instead, the recovery system would rely on a chain of redemption centers.
