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.
Industry is more responsible for managing the life cycle of designated products and consumer packaging they create and distribute. There’s financial incentive for producers to create better designed products that can be disposed of responsibly. Ultimately, this will reduce municipal waste disposal costs and the amount of garbage in landfills. Your cooperation is needed for the proper collection and recycling of these types of items.
