  • Each program & roles and responsibilities varies tremendously by product – but there are certain unifying principles Will talk about performance goals later
  • Principles: Cost internalization Shared responsibility manufacturers have greatest role to play Lifecycle costs Performance goals Flexibility for producers
  • - While leaders can emerge in voluntary programs – we need regulated programs to have high performing programs – example texas
  • California has taken the lead with 6 laws Maine close behind - all states on the east coast with at least one
  • - With legislation map – we see this is in blue and red states alike w/ Nebraska introducing electronics legislation
  • Most momentum behind electronics Lots of momentum behind mercury products But growing interest in non-toxic wastes such as paint & batteries
  • This year we saw legislation introduced on plastic bags – applying the EPR model to a familiar problem - Packaging & printed materials (will discuss later) Phone books mandatory opt out And pharms – lots of activity establishing take back programs but a number of them are state-run due to regulations regarding who can handle cerain durgs such as narcotics which can be absued.
  • Leader with a number of groundbreaking laws – not afraid to go first - first to pass framework – went thru review of existing programs & nomination for new programs Number of programs introduced this year – their legislative prospects under the new administration are uncertain -Governor – Reform platform @ the moment he ’s taken out of it the pieces pertaining to PS legislation nothing ’s happened in terms of killing or repealing existing programs
  • Taken important first step of introducing packaing and printed materials (including books, newpapers, etc) These programs have been in place in Europe for quite a while Likely coming on the horizion shortly EPA hosting a dialogue now with industry Many industry leaders are expecting this not as a if but a when Two year session – but due to this history of the bill, future uncertain First included a repeal of the bottle bill – but this has since been removed
  • Following Maine’s example (and a study bill last year) – has introduced framework Includes three products Framework is the direction that we would like to see these programs go, but there is the risk when introducing framework of getting the attention of every industry -
  • Roll out state/ (as is vermont) and is part of a national agreement with the Paint Industry Provides an alternate arrangement – where the paint industry is actually lobby in favor of the paint legislation – of course only the legislation that was proposed Preferred to see a systematic implementation rather than what we’ve seen with electronics
  • Good game of catch up ewaste and battery laws - pharms for healthcare facilities – not mandated EPR
  • Just want to demonstrate that Mass and NH are the only states in the region without e-waste laws
