FREE CSG eCademy Webcast


Product stewardship laws have a goal of reducing the environmental, safety and health impacts of consumer products. These laws typically focus on the end-of-life management of these products and generally require the manufacturers to take responsibility for recycling or safely disposing of these products when consumers cease using them. The first product stewardship laws were passed in the early 1990s and focused on batteries. More recently, product stewardship laws are being applied to more consumer products and states are structuring these laws in different ways. This FREE eCademy webcast featured Chaz Miller, director of policy and advocacy for the National Association of Waste and Recycling, who discussed emerging issues and trends in product stewardship laws in the states.
