Information maintained by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Updating the database of the Illinois Compiled Statutes (ILCS) is an ongoing process. Recent laws may not yet be included in the ILCS database, but they are found on this site as Public Acts soon after they become law. For information concerning the relationship between statutes and Public Acts, refer to the Guide.

Because the statute database is maintained primarily for legislative drafting purposes, statutory changes are sometimes included in the statute database before they take effect. If the source note at the end of a Section of the statutes includes a Public Act that has not yet taken effect, the version of the law that is currently in effect may have already been removed from the database and you should refer to that Public Act to see the changes made to the current law.

    Sec. 10. Beginning January 1, 1992, no person shall offer for sale any single use plastic bottle with a capacity of 16 fluid ounces or more, nor any other single use rigid plastic container with a capacity of 8 fluid ounces or more, that is not coded in a manner that assists recyclers in sorting such containers by resin composition. The code shall consist of a 3-sided triangular arrow with a number in the center and letters underneath. The number and letters shall indicate the resin from which the container is made as follows: 1 and PETE for polyethylene terephthalate, 2 and HDPE for high density polyethylene, 3 and V for vinyl, 4 and LDPE for low density polyethylene, 5 and PP for polypropylene, 6 and PS for polystyrene, and 7 and Other for other materials, including multi-layer materials. Containers with labels or base cups of different material shall be coded by their primary, basic material. However, this Section does not apply to the plastic casings on lead-acid storage batteries.
