Shifting Tides: Trends in Beverage Container Deposit and Packaging Legislation

A One-Day Online Conference Presented By the Container Recycling Institute


January 10, 2022
8:30 a.m. – 2:30 p.m. Pacific Time


From national beverage container deposit legislation proposals, to state bottle bill modernizations, to passage of EPR for packaging laws – and more – this conference will provide comprehensive insights into the latest U.S. recycling legislation developments and trends.

Hear from a wide range of experts on the following topics, with plenty of time for audience Q&A:

•    Bottle Bill Progress in New England: In 2021, Connecticut passed most significant bottle bill expansion in the U.S. in about a decade. What does this legislation accomplish? And what is the status of proposed beverage container deposit program upgrades in nearby Vermont and Massachusetts?

•    At Long Last: EPR for Packaging Comes to the U.S.: Much-heralded progress occurred in 2021 with the passage of the nation’s first two extended producer responsibility (EPR) for packaging laws (in Maine and then Oregon). How did we get here? How can we develop model EPR legislation for other states?

•    Breaking New Ground: California and National Updates: California’s 2021 adoption of a comprehensive slate of recycling-related bills represents important progress in the nation’s third-largest state. And the introduction of legislation that would establish a national beverage container deposit-return system shows renewed support for a U.S.-wide solution. Can a national bottle bill finally become a reality?  

•    Where Do We Go From Here? These legislative changes are occurring at a time when the COVID pandemic has impacted beverage container demand and recycling, and disrupted the supply chain of recycled material. So what happens next? Our expert panelists will discuss what they expect the future to look like with new recycling legislation on the books and in the works.

Webinar Information


As beverage sales increase, recycling remains flat. The result is that we continually need more resources to meet the growing demands of our consumption-driven, throw-away lifestyle – and more landfill space to dispose of it.

One of the hallmarks of the Container Recycling Institute is our research tracking state by state sales, recycling and wasting data for most beverages and beverage packaging sold in the U.S.  We are getting ready to release our 2013 report which includes data covering the past 10 years. Our research has revealed some interesting and pronounced trends over the past decade. We are eager to share our findings with you.

On September 12, we are hosting a webinar to preview our report and unveil the U.S. beverage container recycling rate. We expect this webinar to be popular and we have limited capacity, so sign up now and reserve your spot!

The discussion will be facilitated by CRI’s President, Susan Collins.  Jenny Gitlitz, CRI’s former research director and current principal consultant on this year’s report, will outline the substantive aspects of the research project.  Jenny has conducted CRI’s research for this report for several years.  The webinar will walk you through the details of the report as well as the important implications for the container and recycling industries going forward.
