Maine First State to Charge CPG Fee for Packaging Material
Someone has to do it first.
Maine became the first state that will "require producers of consumer brands packaged goods to finance the maintenance and expansion of municipal recycling programs sold in state."
Along with that, brands that already use recyclable materials will receive an incentive. Next up: Oregan.
Do you reside in one of these states? If so, how has this affected you?
