Recycling Bill Introduced

By Evan Preston
State Director

On the first day of the legislative session, a bill was introduced that would significantly overhaul recycling in Connecticut.

Senate Bill 27, introduced by House and Senate Leadership, would set a higher recyling goal for Connecticut, start a process to phase out the incinerator in Hartford, and create a new non-profit recycling education organization in Connecticut.  You can read more details of the bill here.

ConnPIRG has been calling for the state to get serious about increasing recycling and reducing waste - and this bill represents a good first step.   We'll be digging into the details of the bill and proposing ways to improve it as the legislative session progresses.
