[GreenYes] Looking for Adopted Extended Producer Responsibility orProduct Stewardship resolutions and ARFs for batteries


I don't know if these apply, but we have ordinances in our area that stores that sell certain products (mercury thermostats, motor oil, fluorescent lamps, automotive batteries) must offer to take them back from customers and then recycle them. The state has some similar laws.

Let me know if this is what you are looking for and I can give you the web page links.

Subject: [CRRA] Looking for Adopted Extended Producer Responsibility or Product
Stewardship resolutions and ARFs for batteries

Made up of a group of representatives from cities and counties located in
California, the California Product Stewardship Council is a nonprofit
association whose mission is to shift California's product waste management
system from one focused on government funded and ratepayer financed waste
diversion to one that relies on producer responsibility in order to reduce
public costs and drive improvements in product design that promote
environmental sustainability.

We are looking for examples from communities - not only in
California - that have adopted Extended Producer Responsibility or
Product Stewardship resolutions. Copies of the resolutions would be
extremely helpful.

We are also looking for communities that have implemented Advance
Recycling Fees for household batteries. A quick description of the program,
and if it's been successful, would be helpful.

Thanks in advance for any help you can give.
