We create efficient and effective recycling systems

We are a national not-for-profit producer responsibility organization that represents the evolution to a more circular economy where materials are collected, recycled and returned to producers for use as recycled content in new products and packaging.

About us

Extended producer responsibility

Extended producer responsibility, or EPR, is a policy approach in which producers – the businesses that supply packaging and paper – are responsible for the end-of-life management of their materials.
