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.

415 ILCS 110/2013

    (415 ILCS 110/2013) (from Ch. 96 1/2, par. 9763)
    Sec. 2013. Mandatory recycling.
    (a) If the Department determines that the 1993 annual aggregate average of recycled fiber usage does not meet or exceed the goal established in Section 2003 of this Act, the provisions of this Section shall be implemented.
    (b) During the year 1994 every consumer of newsprint in Illinois shall be required to ensure that its recycled fiber usage is at least 28%, unless he complies with subsection (c) or (d).
    (c) If recycled content newsprint cannot be found that meets quality standards established by the Agency, or if recycled content newsprint cannot be found in sufficient quantities to meet recycled fiber usage requirements within a given year, or if recycled newsprint cannot be found at a price comparable to that of newsprint made from 100% virgin fibers, the consumer of newsprint shall so certify to the Agency and provide the Agency with the specific reasons for failing to meet recycled fiber usage requirements.
    (d) A consumer of newsprint who has made previous contracts with newsprint suppliers before January 1, 1991, may be exempt from the requirements of this Act if those requirements are in conflict with the agreements set forth in the contract. The consumer of newsprint must conform to the conditions of this Act immediately upon expiration or nullification of the contract. Contracts may not be entered into or renewed as an attempt to evade the requirements of this Act.
    (e) Any consumer of newsprint who knowingly provides the Agency with a false or misleading certificate concerning why the consumer of newsprint was unable to obtain the minimum amount of recycled content newsprint needed to achieve the recycled fiber usage requirements, commits a Class C misdemeanor, and the Agency, within 30 days of making this determination, shall refer the false or misleading certificate to the Attorney General for prosecution.
    (f) Any person who knowingly violates subsection (b) of this Section is guilty of a business offense punishable by a fine of not more than $1,000.
