We need to stop litter and keep Massachusetts clean!

A YES vote on Question 2 will do that by finally updating a 32-year-old law (the 1982 “Bottle Bill”) to include nickel deposits on water bottles and sports drinks like Gatorade -- which we see more and more on our Little League Fields, floating in our streams, and strewn in our parks.

Voting YES on Question 2 will:

  • Reduce the water bottle and sports drinks litter that turns our streets and parks into an eyesore.

  • Increase recycling rates: right now, more than 80% of bottles with deposits are redeemed / recycled, compared with less than 23% of bottles without deposits. The rest end up as trash or litter.

  • Save our cities and towns about $7 million a year—or an average of $1 per person living in our state—in litter pick up and trash disposal costs.
