This report was produced in response to Governor Andrew M. Cuomo’s executive budget proposal to expand New York State’s bottle bill at the beginning of 2019.

The Governor’s proposal would expand the current deposit return system to include sports drinks, energy drinks, fruit and vegetable beverages, as well as ready-to-drink teas and coffee.

The report graphically illustrates the scale and impact of the Governor’s proposed changes to the bottle bill.  It supplements our report Employment and Economic Impact of Container Deposits in New York, which was released in early March 2019.
