EPR in Maryland: How Could It Work for Your Residential Recycling Program?
February 8 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EST
Be sure to join us at Noon on Monday, February 8 to explore the ins and outs of Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) and take a look at new legislation designed to implement EPR for packaging and paper in Maryland. This webinar features a panel of industry professionals and the sponsoring legislator who will address the anticipated impact of EPR on Maryland’s local government and recycling industry.
What is EPR? In brief, EPR, also known as Product Stewardship,places responsibility for end-of-life product management on producers and other companies involved in the product chain while encouraging design changes that make products more recyclable.
Sounds good, but what impact would EPR have on Maryland’s local governments, residential recycling programs and recycling industry?
- Will it cover a local government’s recycling costs?
- What impact will it have on Maryland’s MRFs?
- Will it lead to more easily recyclable packaging and less packaging?
- What impact will it have on your recycling programs?
We’ll address these questions and yours over the course of this webinar. Our panelists include:
- Brooke Lierman, Maryland State Delegate, District 46
- Dani DiPietro, Legislative Director for Delegate Brooke Lierman
- Michele Blair, Recycling Coordinator at City of Laurel
- Chaz Miller, Principal, Miller & Associates
- Adam Ortiz, Director of the Montgomery County Department of Environmental Protection
- Neil Seldman, Ph.D., Director of the Waste to Wealth Initiative, Institute for Local Self-Reliance
