The Spectrum of Approaches to U.S. Packaging EPR: From Reimbursement to Full Responsibility
June 17, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
This free webinar was co-organized by 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., many different approaches have emerged. This webinar summarized the spectrum of EPR models, from “Full EPR” systems run by producers to “Municipal Reimbursement” systems with more municipal control, and many hybrid structures. PSI [PDF] presented an overview of the emerging EPR for PPP models and shared lessons learned from around the world about the pros and cons of each approach. Then, experts from New York [PDF], Vermont [PDF], and Maryland [PDF] shared insights into why each state has taken a distinct approach to EPR for PPP.
