Seattle Public Utilities in favor of EPR, WRAP Act

In a Feb. 2023 article in Resource RecyclingSeattle Public Utilities voiced their support of the Washington Recycling and Packaging (WRAP) Act, arguing that although Seattle has developed a very successful recycling program over the years, it is impossible to keep up with the rapid changes in the packaging industry.

McKenna Morrigan, strategic advisor for waste prevention and product stewardship for Seattle Public Utilities, discussed in the article how the WRAP Act was constructed through years of policy discussions: "[the WRAP Act] represented the culmination of that policy discussion and really represents a very thoughtful and well-refined approach that is going to meet the needs of Washington cities and other stakeholders in the industry and make a meaningful difference."
