The regulation encompasses all containers of ready-to-drink beverages, except for milk, milk substitutes, infant formula and meal replacements. The regulation requires a seller of beverages to collect a deposit from the purchase, specifies the minimum amount of the deposit and requires seller and/or depots to accept containers and pay a refund per container not less than the amount of the deposit collected. Containers are managed in accordance with three stewardship plans approved under the regulation. The stewardship plans are required to show how an 85 percent recovery rate will be achieved within 2 years after the implementation date for the plan. In 2001, the overall recovery rate was unchanged from 2000, at 81percent
