Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR)


Local Governments

Cities and counties are directly immersed in the day-to-day business of waste management. Learn about the unique opportunities and roles for local governments within an EPR program.

State Governments

State government generally has the role and responsibility to provide a level playing field so that no unfair advantage exists among producers and other stakeholders. The lead State agency also oversees a consultative process among government agencies to solicit technical expertise, identify roles and responsibilities, and help ensure effective implementation of the States' responsibilities.
