The Impact – Recycling Overhaul and the Bottle Bill Debate

This week on The Impact we look at the return of legislation to overhaul the state’s recycling system, from the bill to hold companies responsible for their packaging waste, to the “bottle bill” which would create a 10¢ deposit/return law for bottles and cans. We also cover legislation to create new pathways for food banks, cannabis plant waste, and poisonous light bulbs. The episode features extended interviews with Zero Waste Washington Executive Director Heather Trim and Katie Beeson representing the Washington Food Industry Association.
