Recology Partners with CPSC to Support Product Stewardship
Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR), or Product Stewardship, ensures that products and packaging are designed from the start to be recyclable. It also drives manufacturers to design products so they can be reused and eliminate all unnecessary packaging.
Recology operates several materials recovery facilities in California and coordinates programs recovering a variety of materials.
CPSC says Product Stewardship is a policy approach that shifts financial responsibility for end-of-life product management from government to all organizations involved in the product chain, which will also create more jobs in the private sector to collect and remanufacture materials.
According to CPSC, Californians spend more than $100 million annually to manage products that are banned from landfills, which the group says is economically unsustainable.
