Summary by Dirk Langeveld

Connecticut would begin an effort to develop recycled content requirements for products sold in the state under a bill unanimously passed in the Connecticut Senate. The bill will now go to the Connecticut House of Representatives.

The measure directs the Commissioner of the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection to consult with retailers, manufacturers, recycling businesses in the state, and regional organizations such as the Northeast Recycling Council in researching the requirements. It also orders the commissioner to consider recycled product standards from other states and jurisdictions.

The commissioner must submit a report on the findings to a relevant legislative committee by Dec. 1, 2022. This report will include recommendations for recycled content requirements as well as multi-state coordination for the development of such standards.
