We, the undersigned, support Iowa\'s Beverage Container Redemption Law, better known as the Bottle Bill. To make a good thing better, we support strengthening Iowa\'s Bottle Bill in the following ways:
1) Expand the Bottle Bill to include water, tea, fruit and vegetable juices & drinks, sports drinks, and other non-carbonated beverages, excluding milk.
2) Increase the per container handling fee (paid by distributors to grocery stores and redemption centers) from 1 to 2 cents and establish a schedule for future increases.
3) Maintain the Bottle Bill\'s current convenient system of redeeming beverage containers at grocery stores, convenience stores and redemption centers.
Sponsors: Iowa Recycling Association, Iowa Environmental Council, Izaak Walton League (Iowa Chapter), Iowa PIRG, Iowa League of Women Voters, Sierra Club (Iowa Chapter), Redemption Centers of Iowa, and Iowans for Convenient Redemption.
