BILL NUMBER:S8375 TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the environmental conservation law, in relation to the number of reverse vending machines required for mandatory acceptance of empty beverage containers PURPOSE: This bill would revise the number of reverse vending machines (RVMs) that are required of certain businesses to redeem empty beverage containers, based on the square footage of the store. SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Section 1 of the bill would amend Environmental Conservation Law (ECL) § 27-1007(1)(b) to adjust the number of RVMs that are required based on the square footage of a business that sells beverages subject to the New York State Returnable Container Act. Businesses with at least 40,000 but less than 60,000 square feet would be required to install two instead of three RVMs. Businesses with at least 60,000 but less than 85,000 square feet would be required to install three instead of four RVMs. Businesses with at least 85,000 square feet would be required to install four instead of eight RVMs.
