Extended Producer Responsibility

Many governments and companies have adopted Extended Producer Responsibility to help address the growing problem of E-waste, used electronics contain materials that cannot be safely thrown away with regular household trash. In 2007, according to the Environmental Protection Agency, people throw away 2.5 million tons of cell phones, TV’s, computers, and printers. Many governments have partnered with corporations in creating the necessary collection and recycling infrastructure. Some argue that local and manufacturer-supported Extended Producer Responsibility laws give manufacturers greater responsibility for the reuse, recycling, and disposal of their own products.
