GlobalPSC Event – Packaging EPR in British Columbia
In May 2011, the British Columbia Recycling Regulation was amended to include Packaging and Printed Paper as a product category. As a result, producers of packaging and printed paper are required to implement stewardship programs for collection and recycling in BC.
Key representatives of the BC Ministry of Environment have agreed to discuss the implications of this change at a special GlobalPSC breakfast seminar we are holding in conjunction with the Product Stewardship Institute and the 7th Annual National Product Stewardship Forum in Portland Oregon.
David Lawes (Head, Industry Product Stewardship) and Teresa Conner (Sr. Policy Advisor) will present on the changes and be available to answer questions the morning of 27 September at the conference hotel, the Doubletree Portland. Registration will be free for GlobalPSC members. Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re interested in attending so we can make appropriate arrangements.Tags: British Columbia, EPR, Global Product Stewardship Council, GlobalPSC, GPSC, legislation, Packaging, policy, Printed Paper, producer responsibility, product stewardship, recycling, sustainability, www.globalpsc.net
