The Israel Consumer Council this week presented the Knesset Economic Action committee with proposed legislation that would expand the country's recycling program to include bottles that are 1.5 liters and larger, as well as encourage consumers to recycle all sized metal, glass and plastic containers. The plan, which was drawn up by Consumer Council director-general Ehud Peleg, calls for the government to install recycling machines in all of the country's supermarkets. This move, claimed the council, will allow consumers to more easily receive some of the NIS 20m. that they are not collecting annually as the current recycling program, in which consumers must stand on lines to return bottles in stores without machines, is too cumbersome, leading approximately 60% of consumers to not recycle any of their empty bottles and cans.
