Lawmakers in the Oregon House approved a bottle bill that would increase the containers recycled in the State. The final vote for the Bottle Bill was 47 for, and 12 against. House Representative Jason Conger of Bend says although there were things he didn't like about the bill, he supported it. And the good parts have to do with continuing to modernize a tremendously successful recycling program. But House Representative Gene Whisnant of Sunriver voted against it: “But this Bill was increasing the number of items we're recycling without addressing the recycling centers and how to do that.” The Bill would expand recycled items to include juice, tea and sports and energy drinks by January of 2018.   The bill now heads to the Senate.
