The commission shall recommend to the general assembly, annually, deposits, rebates, and waste abatement fees on elements of the waste stream when necessary to encourage waste reduction, and the recycling and recovery of useful components of that waste stream element, or to encourage proper management and disposal of components that cannot be recycled or recovered. In making these recommendations, the commission shall not recommend the imposition of a deposit, rebate, or waste abatement fee on an element that is being properly managed through a market-driven or publicly supported recycling, recovery, or source separation program. The commission shall recommend to the general assembly that a deposit, rebate, or waste abatement fee is removed from an element of the waste stream when the commission determines that market forces will ensure that the element is recycled, recovered, or properly managed and disposed.
