Why the Recycling Refund

Recycling-Rates-per-State

The State of Minnesota set a goal to recycle 80% of beverage containers by 2012.  Currently Minnesotans recycle less than half that amount.  The Minnesota Recycling Refund Act would encourage recycling, reduce litter, and decrease recyclables in landfills.  It would also help raise income for the state, fund local curbside programs, create jobs, and provide great fund raising opportunities for schools and civic organizations.
