Maine Towns Need Relief from the Rising Costs of Recycling
Contact your legislator to pass 1541, a bill to save taxpayers money and get rid of wasteful packaging
Recycling in Maine is struggling to survive as towns face an ever-growing flood of wasteful packaging that costs taxpayers more than $16 million a year. Please contact your legislator and ask them to save taxpayers money and improve recycling by supporting LD 1541.
Lawmakers will soon vote on LD 1541 which would bring relief to Maine towns and make recycling more effective by requiring big brands like Amazon or Wal-Mart to reimburse towns for the costs of managing wasteful packaging.
Without this law, Maine towns will continue to struggle to pay for recycling programs and more and more waste will end up in the landfill or incinerator.
Industry lobbyists are well-funded and intent on killing this bill, so we need your help to demonstrate overwhelming public support for recycling reform.
Use the form on right to send a message to your state legislator to support LD 1541!
