Several groups and leaders to meet to discuss bottle return backlog

The coronavirus pandemic forced a lot of changes across the state -- and it's called into question a 40-year-old law.

 

Several companies and associations are planning to hold a zoom meeting today to discuss how to recycle the state's bottle deposit law -- and how to reinvest in it.

 

They say infrastructures are not equipped properly to handle the large returns made by Michigan homes as cans and bottles have piled up for nearly FIVE months due to the statewide lockdown.

 

They estimate it would take six months for retailers and distributors to clear through the massive backlog of bottles and cans.
