HB 2105

West Virginia Beverage Container Recycling and Litter Control Act

This bill would impose a 10-cent deposit on all beverages sold in containers, which would be redeemable at certified recycling centers. These centers would recycle all such containers. The State Treasurer would reimburse the recycling centers for the redemption payments plus a 3% fee. The bill also authorizes reverse vending machines that would accept containers and issue redeemable vouchers. The bill would also create a Community Litter Control Fund within DNR funded by unredeemed deposits.
