RR Conference 2013: EPR lessons learned from British Columbia

British Columbia has taken a revolutionary step in establishing a province-wide extended producer responsibility (EPR) model for printed paper and consumer packaging. Fully funded by industry, this bold new approach has been the target of strong opinions from both advocates and critics. This informative session explores the diversity of opinions about what happens when a province converts its recycling system from a government-mandated model to an EPR one. In this candid session, four experts with diverse perspectives will share the nitty-gritty details of what's happening in British Columbia and will present a fair and balanced understanding of the concept, process and framework.
