2019 Bills and Campaigns for Deposit Systems

Proposed Container Deposit Laws:

This webpage contains information on a selection of deposit-related bills before state legislatures. In 2019, there were more than 100 bills introduced throughout the United States:

  • some for new deposit laws
  • some to expand or modify existing deposit laws
  • others that would repeal deposit laws.

As a small organization, CRI doesn’t have the time or the resources to maintain a comprehensive library of all pending legislation, so we’ve done our best to profile a sample of the bills that we think are most important.

Prior years contain samples of introduced bills.
