WA Container Deposit Bill Falters in House

Share Post

Failing to pass the House, H.B. 1131 sought to: require producers of certain paper products and packaging (covered PPP) to participate in and fund the operations of a producer responsibility organization (PRO) to collect and manage covered PPP from consumers; make changes to minimum post-consumer recycled content (PCRC) requirements, including requiring additional types of products to meet PCRC requirements, moving responsibility for the registration and reporting of covered PPP products that are also subject to PCRC requirements to the PRO, and amending existing PCRC requirements for products subject to PCRC requirements that are not covered PPP; and to provide for producers of certain beverage containers to satisfy producer responsibility obligations for the beverage containers through the formation of a distributor responsibility organization and the establishment of a deposit return system.
