We need your support TODAY to push New Jersey’s Recycled Content bill – S2515/A4676
S2515/A4676 establishes postconsumer recycled content requirements for rigid plastic containers, glass containers, paper and plastic carryout bags, and plastic trash bags; and prohibits the sale of polystyrene loose fill packaging.
ANJR is supporting this bill as we believe it is critical to the future success of recycling. S2515/A4676 will increase demand for recyclable materials by requiring their increasing use in certain products.
Proposed amendments to S2515/A4676 have just become available and are relatively minor in scope in the context of the overall legislation and do not alter ANJR’s very strong support.
The Assembly Appropriations Committee which will entertain the amendments at their scheduled session this Thursday morning, January 6. Monday, January 10 is the final day of the Lame Duck session of the Legislature and when floor votes will be taken in both the Assembly and Senate if the bill is approved in Committee on Thursday.
ACTION NEEDED: Please contact your Assembly & Senate representatives and ask them to support this important legislation and especially if they sit on the Assembly Appropriations Committee.
