NJ's Recycled Content Bill (S2515/A4676) to establish post-consumer recycled content requirements for packaging products is moving through the New Jersey legislature. We need everyone to contact their legislators to make sure this bill passes and becomes law!
This bill would require post-consumer recycled content in a variety of packaging products. After two years, rigid plastic containers and bottles will be required to respectively meet 25% and 15% post-consumer recycled content and increase that percentage over time until reaching 50%. The bill also sets content standards and benchmarks for glass containers, paper and plastic carryout bags, and plastic trash bags.
This will be a huge step toward keeping new fossil-fuel derived plastics out of the waste stream and strengthening the market for recyclable materials.
Take action and urge your NJ Legislators to support S2515/A4676 and continue moving this bill forward.
