Forty years after the first Earth Day, Connecticut’s rivers run cleaner, air quality is better and Long Island Sound is much less polluted than it was in 1970. But environmental activists, state lawmakers and veterans of the first Earth Day all agree there’s still a long way to go.

Locally, the state’s 32-year-old recycling law takes tons of bottles, cans, paper and cardboard out of the daily waste stream that used to end up in garbage cans, landfills and incinerators.
