We’ve all seen trash in the the Reservation. Here’s a way to help clean it up.
Each year, 1 billion bottles end up as litter or trash that we could recycle if we expanded the Bottle Bill to include bottled water, sports drinks, iced teas and other beverages. That’s enough bottles to fill Fenway Park to the Monster seats.
The Updated Bottle Bill, a bill that is currently stuck in the legislature, would increase recycling and help reduce the amount of trash. Community groups are working to bring this bill for a vote, which would be good for Blue Hills visitors and for the forests throughout the Commonwealth.
To help advance the bill out of Committee, we encourage you to join MassPIRG’s effort to send emails to Speaker of the Massachusetts House, Robert DeLeo to ask him to bring the bill to a vote. Send an email here.
