Recycling Competition Bill in Senate Judiciary TODAY
We need you to contact the committee and voice your support for the bill. Let the Senate Judiciary Committee members know: 1. You think there need to be more choices in recycling in West Virginia so families and businesses have the option to responsibly deal with their waste, 2. That allowing for some small nonprofit cooperatives to increase recycling rates helps grow the local economy, and 3. That you support SB 352.More
