					       Universal Wastes and Extended Producer Responsibility
…or Wasting Universally vs. Extending Production Responsibly
  Questions about Extended
Producer Responsibility (EPR)
            • What EPR programs already exist
              outside the US that we can model?
            • How are EPR Take Back programs
              different than other HHW programs?
            • How has EPR evolved in California?
            • What has been learned from EPR
              efforts in California so far?
            • What models can my community
              use?
            • What is EPR Framework Legislation
              and why should we care?
            • What more can we each do to
              accelerate implementation of EPR
              programs?
