Who passed the legislation for recycling?

    While there is no federal law concerning recycling, mandatory recycling laws have been instituted by a number of state and local governments. If you’ve ever noticed on soda bottles and cans, different states have different cash refund values for the same item. This is an example of a mandatory deposit-refund system in which the consumer is required to pay a deposit for each container that they buy from the retailer and later obtain a refund of their deposit when they take the container to a recycling facility. As far a who is responsible for the legislation, it would be easier to answer for a specific municipality or city.
