  1. To shore up packaging recycling, Maine is making businesses foot the bill
    The policy is common outside of the US—and moves the responsibility of waste from taxpayers back to producers.

    “While the US, for the most part, has stuck to a method that puts the onus of recycling on local governments and consumers themselves, many other countries do it differently—and are far better at recycling waste than we are. Europe, Japan, South Korea, and Canada specifically use a policy tool called Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR), which puts the responsibility paying for or managing recycling systems on the original producers of the waste. Now, Maine is the first US state to take a stab at the approach for consumer packaging.”
