Also known as Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR), this approach to recycling creates efficiencies and raises awareness about producing items that don’t harm the environment.
There’s actually financial incentive for producers to create better designed products that can be disposed of responsibly. Ultimately, this will reduce municipal waste disposal costs as well as the amount of garbage in landfills.
Industry is more responsible to managing the life cycle of designated products and consumer packaging they create and distribute. Your cooperation is needed for the proper collection and recycling of these types of items.
