Forest Hills Journal (Newspaper) - November 2, 1979, Cincinnati, OhioA-2 journal a Friday november 2, t979 Foj yes on Issue 1 Why til Vot on Ohio a bottle Bill by Mark begun managing editor More intense debate has raged concerning Ohio s proposed bottle Bill than Over Many issues which at least superficially would seem to be of More consequence. The Buckeye state is not the first in which this philosophical Battle has been waged. Michigan in 1976, was the scene of a simlar struggle one which was won by the pro Deposit faction. That vote generated world wide interest both sides of the Issue were supported by fierce arguments and grim predictions very much like those being made now in Ohio need to put the brakes on consumption of resources is a moral emergency. If the Issue involved Only the economic merits of various types of containers or the trauma of carrying empty bottles then the time exhausted in discussing the bottle Bill could have been better spent picking up litter but the greedy and wasteful practice of slopping up our own habitat is Central to the Issue. The fact that we have in the recent past been Able to do without the convenience of a a throwaways would indicate that the consumer could suffer the inconvenience of Deposit containers again. Warnings of higher prices could be taken More seriously if beverage prices not been on a commentary in a sure the forecasts of both sides were a bit exaggerated passage of Michigan a Bill has neither made that state a litter free Paradise nor resulted in a shambles of bankrupt by s i n esses and s wee Ping unemployment. One tact about the controversy has i believe received less attention than it warrant massive use of no Deposit bottles is a relatively recent phenomenon. Unless my memory fails me most soft drinks were sold in returnable bottles and most a Beer and malt beverage bottles were returnable. As Deposit bottles waned within the last 20 years the a a throwaways or a disposables a came into More frequent use. I believe there has been an increase in the amount of garbage we generate since the a a throwaways have become More popular and i Don t think that is Mere coincidence. From the conservationist s standpoint the need to reduce litter is a High priority and the steady Rise during the shift to a a throwaways and if the alternative proposed by the ant Deposit lobby would result in a drop or stabilization of prices. But the alternative involves levying a tax which would be used to pick up litter and convince ohioans not to throw away a throwaways a we re told that businesses would compensate for that greater tax bite in any Way other than to raise prices is difficult to believe. Passing the bottle Bill cannot help but reduce litter and slow the trend towards total consumption. Those Are very worthy goals and working towards them is worthwhile despite problems for Industry. Industry displayed a commendable ability to adapt when it saw the financial benefits of a rapid switch to a throwaways a i m confident it can respond with equal vigor and greater creativity during a forced return to deposits once the ecological benefits Are considered. By Bob Taft ii state representative this column continues a discussion of the pros and cons of Issue 1 on next tuesdays ballot which provides for mandatory deposits on the Sale of beverage containers. I will discuss the issues of Job loss Energy savings out of state sales and alternative anti titter proposals. Job loss it is difficult to estimate the effect of Issue 1�?Ts enactment on jobs in Ohio. There Are 3,665 men and women directly employed in 12 Ohio plants which manufacture beverage bottles and cans. A significant reduction in such employment is quite possible under Issue 1 because most beverages will be hold in returnable bottles rather than cans or throw away bottles. Michigan a experience to Date has been a Job loss of about 23 percent in the Container manufacturing Industry but that figure is under dispute by those who cite other reasons for the Job loss. Ohio produces cans and bottles for Many other states and there May be a Lon term Adverse Impact if enactment of Issue 1 in Ohio encourages approval of similar Laws around the country. There is also a positive Side to the employment question. New jobs would be created for Stock clerks warehouse employees and Container handlers who would be hired to Recycle returnable containers Energy costs a Issue 1 backers cite an Energy savings since less Energy is required to we Ash a bottle than to produce one. Opponents Point out that additional gasoline will be consumed by the trucks and vans which most collect the a empty so and return them to wholesalers. Substantially after enactment of the Michigan Law. The Michigan Roadside litter study conducted recently found that two thirds of the beverage containers found along Michigan highways were throwaways from other Stales. Alternative anti litter proposals f four states Nave enacted comprehensive litter Laws imposing a tax on manufacturers and retailers of Columbus dateline passage of Issue 1 May result Over the Long term in a lower Cost for solid waste disposal. Cities in Michigan report a significant decline in the volume of solid waste after the enactment of the Deposit Law there. Out of state sales retailers of Beer and soft drinks in the Cincinnati area Are Likely to experience a decline in sales if Issue 1 passes. Neither Indiana nor Kentucky has a mandatory Deposit Law and the Price differentials May make it worthwhile for ohioans to make out of state purchases. Business in Toledo has picked up litter Stream products with the proceeds used to fund state local and non profit resource recovery litter control and Energy conversion projects. A similar Bill. House Bill 361, was approved by the Ohio House last month and sent to the Ohio Senate. If Ohio voters do not approve Issue 1 next tuesday it is quite Likely that . 361 would be enacted into Law next year. Although it is too Early to measure the results of this Type of legislation in those states where it has been adopted the concept is More comprehensive than Issue 1. My own View Issue 1 is a complicated proposal involving a wide Range of costs and benefits for ohioans. After weighing these factors i have decided that i will vote a a not next tuesday i believe that removal of most bottles and cans from Roadside litter is a worthy goal but one that in my opinion does not justify the very substantial costs in Terras of inflation of prices at the supermarket inconvenience to Consumers and the loss of a number of existing skilled jobs in the steel can and bottling industries. With respect to this last Point 1 believe we should show concern for the Impact on the Ohio Economy As a whole and remember that those states which have mandatory Deposit Laws such As Vermont and Michigan Are not major bottle and can producing states like Ohio my greatest concern with Issue i is that it is another example of government action resulting in higher prices to Consumers. Inflation is already raging uncontrollably. I believe that the litter tax proposal in . 361 is a far less expensive Means of reducing litter through education and recycling programs.
