Reasons for the Increase in Beverage Container Waste
  • Growth in beverage sales (units sold)
  • Growth in sales of “new age” beverages not covered by existing deposit laws (except in Maine & CA)
  • Increase in away-from-home consumption
  • Increase in contamination of recyclables collected through curbside recycling--esp. glass
  • Declining value of nickel deposit in bottle bill states and declining value of scrap aluminum cans in non-bottle bill states
