New York could become the second state to ban single-use plastic hotel toiletry bottles under 12 ounces if Gov. Andrew Cuomo signs a bill (S543) that passed last week. The bill would apply to hotels with 50 rooms or more starting in January 2024 and all others in 2025.

Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey recently signed a bill (SB 1156) to promote “advanced” or chemical recycling, including new definitions and regulations around the process. It is now the 12th state to do so, following approval of a similar law in Oklahoma last week.

Last week, Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson signed a bill (HB1704) prohibiting municipalities and counties from limiting the use of “auxiliary containers,” defined as any “bag, cup, package, container, bottle, device, or other packaging.”
