The coronavirus pandemic forced a lot of changes across the state -- and it's called into question a 40-year-old law.


Several companies and associations are planning to hold a zoom meeting today to discuss how to recycle the state's bottle deposit law -- and how to reinvest in it.

They estimate it would take six months for retailers and distributors to clear through the massive backlog of bottles and cans.
