New Jersey's recycled content bill, SB 2515, will be overhauled after an extensive meeting between lawmakers and the state's Department of Environmental Protection (DEP). Backers now aim to introduce a substitute bill by the next state Senate Energy and Environment Committee meeting in December, likely moving final action into 2021.

Sen. Bob Smith, committee chair and primary bill sponsor, said during a Monday hearing the new legislation will be "much more towards the California model than the way we started." It would establish a 25% recycled content standards for rigid plastic containers (previously 35%) and a 15% standard for plastic beverage containers (previously 10%). Starting one year after the bill's effective date, those levels would increase by 5% every three years until capping at 50%.
