Abstract
The study includes 2 principle elements: The analyses of 3 types of environmental concern that might be cited as the rationale for a beverage container policy; and The analyses and evaluation of alternative governmental policies for beverage containers, and resulting recommendations. Three types of environmental dimensions to beverage containers were examined as possible bases for government action. These were: The resource dimensions to beverage container production, especially nonrefillable containers; The solid waste dimensions of discarded beverage containers; and The amenities dimensions of littered beverage containers. It is concluded that beverage containers are an environmental problem primarily because some consumers of beverages litter their empty containers rather than disposing of them properly. (Author)
