New York Bigger Better Bottle Bill

A good flyer delivers its message clearly and concisely, making it the perfect handout at events where many people might be unfamiliar with your campaign.

Put The Bottle Bill
To Work For New York!

Since 1982, more than 75 billion containers bearing a 5-cent deposit have been redeemed under New York's bottle bill, contributing to a healthier environment, cleaner and safer communities and a stronger economy. But, the bottle bill must be updated to keep up with our times. The Bigger, Better Bottle Bill, A.3922A/S.1696A, sponsored by Assemblyman DiNapoli and Senator LaValle would:

•  Expand New York's Bottle Bill to include deposits on non-carbonated beverages, such as bottled water, iced tea, juice and sports drinks; and,

•  Require the beverage industry to return all unclaimed deposits to the state to fund municipal recycling and waste prevention programs .

Build on sound policy to enhance our economy:

Update a proven system to create a healthier environment.


Expand an effective law to keep our communities clean and safe: Put the bottle bill to work for New York!

The bottle bill has been an environmental success story for New York. But, we need your help to make it bigger, better and keep up with changing times. To find out more about this campaign, please visit .
