CHAPTER 23-18.16
Newspaper Recyclability

SECTION 23-18.16-1

§ 23-18.16-1. Legislative purpose.

It is the finding of the general assembly that publications in the form of newspapers, magazines, journals; or printed newsletters make up an inordinately large portion of the waste stream and that the state has a successful recycling program which has the ability to collect and process this material. In order to assure the continued viability of the recycling program and to divert material from the state landfills or incinerators, a strong market must exist. Since these publications make up a large portion of the waste stream, they will be required to use post consumer material in the production of their product.
