EPR for PPP in other states

As of February 2021, packaging extended producer responsibility (EPR) legislation has been introduced in California, Colorado, Hawaii, Maryland, New Hampshire, New York, Oregon, Vermont, and Washington this year. Legislators in these nine states have joined together to form the National Extended Producer Responsibility for Packaging Legislator Network "in the hopes that a more synchronized, uniform, and interstate approach to so-called EPR legislation would be easier for industry to implement," according to Spectrum News

The New York Times covered NY's packaging EPR bill, while Resource Recycling covered bills in Massachusetts and Maryland as well as a proposal from the Recycling Leadership Council for “federal policy concepts, focused on data collection and reporting, standardization of recycling systems nationwide, and financing for infrastructure and end market development."
