“Let’s Think Bigger” – How EPR Can Transform Resource Management

Extended Producer Recycling (EPR) will mandate that companies collect and reuse a determined percentage of their own packaging waste, but it will give the companies freedom in implementation. EPR attacks the issue of all packaging waste, bottles and beyond.  Producers will be challenged to figure out “how to get stuff back and do something with it,” reducing energy expenditure, chemical production, and overall waste of resources. Though many are resistant to the concept, some companies, like Nestle are on board and eager to have more access to recycled materials. Once the model for EPR is set in a few states, with the help of smaller organizations reaching out and educating corporations, EPR can be taken to the national level.
