Protect the Children: American Journal of Public Health Article Documents Effectiveness of Bottle Bill Legislation

An artcle published within the October, 1986 edition of the American Journal of Public Health demonstrated the effectiveness of Massachusetts bottle bill legislation toward reducing the incidence of glass lacerations among urban children.

This research study followed Bay State efforts to enact bottle bill legislation with regard to Massachusetts children being treated for glass lacerations (before and after passage) and attributed a 60% (sixty per cent) decline in reported childhood glass lacerations due to the approval of the Massachusetts bottle law.
