Approaches to U.S. Packaging EPR: From Reimbursement to Full Responsibility

When:
June 17, 2021 @ 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm America/New York Timezone
2021-06-17T13:00:00-04:00

Co-organized by the Northeast Waste Management Officials’ Association (NEWMOA), the Product Stewardship Institute (PSI), and the Northeast Recycling Council (NERC).

As extended producer responsibility (EPR) legislation for packaging and paper products (PPP) gains momentum in the U.S.,  different approaches have emerged. This webinar will summarize the spectrum of EPR models in use around the world, from “Full EPR” systems run by producers to “Municipal Reimbursement” systems with more municipal control, and many hybrid structures. PSI will present an overview of the emerging EPR for PPP models and share lessons learned from around the world about the pros and cons of each approach. Then, experts from New York, Vermont, and Maryland will share insights into why each state has taken a distinct approach to EPR for PPP. There will be ample time for audience Q&A.
