SPECIAL BREAKFAST SESSION: PACKAGING AND PRINTED PAPER STEWARDSHIP PROGRAMS IN BRITISH COLUMBIA
For those in the Washington/Oregon area, and particularly those attending the 7th Annual National Product Stewardship Forum in conjunction with the 26th Annual Hazardous Materials Management Conference, you are invited to a pre-conference session:
Packaging and Printed Paper Stewardship Programs in British Columbia
Presented by the Global Product Stewardship Council and the Product Stewardship Institute
Sponsored by Nestle Waters North America
Date: Tuesday, September 27, 2011
Time: 8:00-9:30 am
Location: the Washington Room at the Double Tree Hotel in Portland, Oregon
Cost: Free for all attendees
Don’t miss this special pre-conference opportunity to hear from key officials from the BC Ministry of the Environment, who will talk about British Columbia’s new requirement that all producers of packaging and printed paper collect and recycle the products they make and sell. Packaging and printed paper have been added to BC’s framework Recycling Regulation, which provides a common set of requirements for all product categories prescribed in schedules of the Regulation. BC currently has more product stewardship programs than any other North American jurisdiction and this latest regulation is considered a possible model for the U.S.
The BC Ministry’s David Lawes and Teresa Conner will outline the regulations and answer questions in a small group setting that encourages active discussion. David and Teresa will be joined by Russ Martin, President of GlobalPSC, and Scott Cassel, Executive Director of PSI.
Please e-mail Russ Martin at firstname.lastname@example.org to RSVP.
Thank you to session sponsor, Nestle Waters North America.
