EPR Packaging Comment Opportunity

posted Dec 23, 2014, 11:33 AM by Julie Moore

Due to the interest received in the recently-released local discussion paper, Advancing Local Government’s Interests Through EPR for Packaging, they are extending the comments deadline for an additional 30 days through Friday, January 23rd.

Thanks to everyone who has commented to date. In some of the comments, several people asked how the participants were selected. The goal was to have an informal dialogue with local government leaders from states with ongoing EPR packaging discussions, and develop a document which outlined their hopes and concerns around EPR, and policy recommendations for moving forward.

They invited twenty people in total and ended with an e-mail list of 17 participants. Some we’re not able to participate fully. Others participated, but we’re not able to be publicly represented on the document. Some participated for several calls but not all. They also invited several experts to present to the group and provide feedback for our discussion. The participants in the document were the core individuals who wanted and were able to be listed.

Thanks again for your interest, and please consider commenting.
