Bottle Bill

I got this from our former board member Don Richardson. We do have a litter problem in Memphis (we're now far from our days of winning prizes for being the cleanest city in the country), and a good bit of the trash I see both in the Old Forest and the Harbor downtown is bottles and cans. I'm curious to learn more about this new proposal:

Keeping Memphis Green means keeping
Memphis CLEAN! We can't keep using our
parks, streets, streams & landscape as a
garbage can...
Return the Returnables
A Public Forum on Tennessee's Bottle Bill
Thursday evening, Sept. 17

(Look for the red dome on the roof)
A public forum on the proposed "Bottle Bill", the
litter-and-recycling measure based on a 5-cent
deposit on beverage containers.
In addition to several national authorities and local
perspectives, the panel-style event includes time for
questions and comments from the audience.
Please attend and share your views.
