NERC Has Updated Its Compendium of State Disposal Bans and Mandatory Recycling Laws

SEATTLE (Waste Advantage): The Northeast Recycling Council (NERC) has updated its compendium of state disposal bans and mandatory recycling laws from around the country.  This unique resource provides state-specific information, including contact information, about which materials are banned for disposal and to whom the ban applies, as well as what has to be recycled and by whom. 

Interestingly, every state but one, Montana, has at least “something” banned from disposal in its solid waste facilities—at minimum lead-acid batteries, as is the case in Arizona and Wyoming.  And, 27 states have at least one mandatory recycling requirement.

In addition, there are bottle bill laws in 10 states and Guam: California, Connecticut, Hawaii, Iowa, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, New York, Oregon, and Vermont.
