The Friends of the Blue Hills worked with a statewide coalition to update the state bottle bill. Updating the bottle bill would have increased recycling and would have helped clean up the Blue Hills – and all our parks. Unfortunately, despite a statewide effort of environmental groups, the opposition spent over $8 million on advertisements that included misleading information.  After the deluge of incorrect incorrect information, the ballot initiative failed.

Nevertheless, we will continue to work with the community to keep our parks clean from litter.
