Webinar: Recycler and Waste Hauler Perspectives on EPR for Packaging

Posted by GlobalPSC at 7:52 pm, October 12th, 2016Comments0

The Product Stewardship Institute (PSI) is hosting a webinar of recycler and waste hauler perspectives on extended producer responsibility (EPR) for packaging.

The webinar will take place 27 October, 2016 from 2:00 pm 3:30 pm EDT. 

The US recycling system has experienced a noticeable shift in the past few decades as the waste management and recycling industries have become increasingly privatized. Because of this change, waste and recycling systems often function as contractual agreements between haulers and recyclers with municipalities or residents. In contrast to this system, other countries – which operate under an EPR structure – rely on a central body to coordinate the recycling network, increasing efficiency and recovery. A shift in the US to EPR for consumer packaging would change the way the current contractual arrangements with recyclers and waste haulers are structured. Could the US shift to an EPR system where consumer packaging manufacturers manage and fund the recycling system? Would this change be for the better? Could it provide stability during market downturns and simplify system economics? Who would ultimately own recycled material, and how would a shift in ownership change economic dynamics?

Using the British Columbia system as a case study, expert speakers will explore these questions and more during the third part of PSI’s packaging webinar series.

Speakers:

  • Daniel Lantz, Green by Nature EPR
  • Deanne Stephenson, Cascades Recovery
  • Frank Mainella, Smithrite

Moderated by Scott Cassel, PSI

Last Day to Register – Webinar on U.S. Battery Product Stewardship Developments

Posted by GlobalPSC at 2:31 pm, November 5th, 2014Comments0

 

The United States is on the verge of breakthrough legislation for both primary (single-use) and rechargeable batteries. This shift from a voluntary approach to a regulatory approach covering both battery types has coalesced over the past six months, as an increasing number of government agencies have expressed interest in a legislative solution to household battery management. This webinar will discuss the unique differences between the single-use and rechargeable battery industries, key issues that are being addressed to find a unified legislation solution, explore lessons for other countries such as Australia (where consultation is underway on a national battery stewardship scheme), and outstanding challenges faced by US state and local governments, manufacturers, retailers, and other key stakeholders in the year ahead.

The date of the webinar is:

  • if attending from Australia – Nov. 6th at 9 a.m. EST
  • if attending from the U.S. – Nov. 5th at 5 p.m. EST.

Please note the time change for U.S. participants.

Moderated by Scott Cassel, CEO & Founder, Product Stewardship Institute.

Speakers will include:

  • Marc Boolish, Director of Technology, Energizer Battery Manufacturing Inc, and President, Corporation for Battery Recycling
  • Carl Smith, CEO/President, Call2Recycle
  • Jen Holliday, Compliance Program and Product Stewardship Manager, Chittenden County, Vermont
  • Garth Hickle, Product Stewardship Team Leader, Minnesota Pollution Control Agency

Introduction by Russ Martin, CEO, Global Product Stewardship Council and Independent Chair, Australia’s Battery Implementation Working Group.

Registration is free for Australian residents thanks to our sponsors the Australian Battery Recycling Initiative (ABRI), TES-AMMQueensland Department of Environment and Heritage Protection and Canon, in partnership with the GlobalPSC.

The Roles of Government and Industry in Attaining High Performing Product Stewardship Programs

Tuesday, November 27, 2012
1:00 p.m. – 2:30 p.m. ET
(10:00 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. PT)

How are the roles of government and industry best divided in order to achieve the highest levels of performance in product stewardship programs? This question, first considered during PSI’s 13th webinar series, will be explored on a deeper level in this interactive webinar sequel. Government, business, and academic perspectives will be presented on the proper role of government in product stewardship programs, and whether key program principles, such as transparency and accountability, are best attained through voluntary, mandatory, or hybrid programs that encompass elements from both approaches. On this webinar, presenters will analyze a range of voluntary and regulated programs in relation to their performance and effectiveness in increasing collection and recycling rates, educating consumers, containing costs, and minimizing free riders. Speakers will also elaborate on the performance measures they see as most effective. Ample opportunity for audience participation will also be provided. This webinar is co-sponsored by the Global Product Stewardship Council.

Moderator:

  • Scott Cassel, CEO and Founder, Product Stewardship Institute
