EPR Packaging Bills Introduced to States
As states struggle with how to manage packaging waste, many have made the push towards Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) regulations that move the cost of waste handling from communities to manufacturers. Packaging EPR legislation is currently taking shape in numerous states from the west coast to the east coast. This is an important issue for retail, as many of the bills include requirements that retailers will need to be aware of or implement.
