New York Bottle Bill

This information provided by Surfrider's Northeast Regional Manager:

The NYC Chapter of Surfrider has been working to NY’s bottle deposit law that only covers beer and soda bottles. The Bigger Better Bottle Bill campaign has been waged by statewide environmental groups like NY PIRG for years. The NYC Chapter has infused new energy into the campaign by collecting non-deposit bottles like water bottles off NY beaches and brought them to the state capitol for a press conference. The Eastern and Central Long Island chapters assisted and were represented at the event.
