Our most successful recycling program

Thanks to the Bottle Bill, we recycle more than 75% of covered beverage containers, while only recycling about 36% of other containers.

By modernizing the Bottle Bill to cover additional beverages like bottled water and wine bottles, we can keep an estimated 100 million more bottles and cans our of Vermont’s landfills and off our roadsides every year.

VPIRG is working to modernize the Bottle Bill to cover non-carbonated beverages like bottled water, wine, and sports drink containers and to raise the deposit to ten cents.
