Resolve to Support Recycling Programs

Maine Municipal Association has been informed that the state Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) wants to draft legislation creating an extended producer packaging responsibility law for the Legislature's consideration next year. The goal of the resolve is to create a system that shifts responsibility for managing the waste that producers generate, rather than shifting costs onto property taxpayers. To this end, DEP is seeking input on how best to achieve this goal.  The department wants input by no later than Friday, July 19.
