The Nips Debate

The Digital Edition of ''The Gloucester Daily Times'' is reporting that Gloucester may join at least two suburban Boston Communities urging the Commonwealth to clamp down on litter by adding Nip Bottles to the list of beverage containers that require 5 cent deposits at the time of purchase. 


Gloucester is also set to ask that single use water bottles be added to the current law regarding plastic bottles and cans, as they are in Connecticut. 


Any Changes to the Massachusetts law would likely require voter approval. 


Gloucester has recently banned plastic bags and certain types of food containers.
