Cartoon: Double Redemption Value, Double Recycling

CalRecycle recently announced a multimillion-dollar plan to double the redemption value of bottles and cans and invest in recycling accessibility by expanding mobile recycling and installing reverse “vending machines” to collect recyclables. The funds for this proposal exist because of an increase in the purchase of goods in recyclable containers, with the proposal aiming to promote statewide recycling. (Andrew Shu)
