Governor Kitzhaber signed the state's new bottle bill into law today. Nearly 40 years ago, Oregon became the first state in the country to pass a bottle bill to address the growing litter problem. This new law will add beverage containers like water bottles, sports drinks and teas in the recycling efforts. It also increases the deposit from 5 to 10 cents to encourage higher recycling rates. This increase kicks in if recycling rates drop below 80%.
