Dear Members of the Environmental Regulation Committee: HB 3210 is a win/win for our Texas economy and our environment. Recycling in Texas already accounts for nearly $5 billion annually. Meanwhile, the cost to taxpayers of addressing litter and illegal dumping is around $125 million per year. Other states have been able to reduce litter by up to 50% through recycling programs, just like the one proposed in HB 3210. By passing it, we could potentially grow our economy by billions while also protecting our lakes, rivers, roadways, waterways, fish, livestock, and wildlife. Please report this bill favorably and send it to the House floor!
