Explanation

The bill adds ballfields to the list of common gathering venues that must, under certain circumstances, provide for recycling receptacles.

There is no cost to municipalities if there is no selling or giving away of recyclable items, or if they are not providing trash collection at the ballfields.

However, certain municipalities may incur minimal costs to provide recycling receptacles, in addition to pick-up and disposal at ballfields where there is currently trash collection, or where recyclable items are provided.

The Out Years

The annualized ongoing fiscal impact identified above would continue into the future subject to inflation.
