California and New York are on the verge of implementing a program to recycle electric waste and recycling water.
California is one of two states that require businesses to use plastic bags to collect water, and it’s not far off from becoming a national leader.
In addition, the state is looking to expand its pilot program to water-related products, including plastic bottles, to address the growing demand.
But it’s still a little ways away from being an actual standard.
As of this summer, California businesses are still required to collect and reuse plastic bags and paper products.
That means a majority of the water used to treat it is not recycled.
California’s governor has proposed a $3 million pilot program for businesses to test the effectiveness of recycling their plastic bottles and other plastic materials.
The state’s Department of Water Resources says there are many other ways to reduce waste, including recycling food waste, which accounts for about a quarter of all California’s plastic waste.
And it’s a program that’s expected to be rolled out nationwide.
So far, more than 1.4 million plastic bottles have been recycled and reused in California, which has been credited with a reduction of over 100 million pounds of waste in the last decade.
The California Air Resources Board is also looking into recycling plastic bottles in a pilot program.
The agency’s CEO says it’s been a success.
The pilot program, which is expected to run for five years, will see businesses that can show they are taking advantage of recycled materials and will receive a rebate of up to $250 per plastic bottle.
