As testimony to the Regional Council of Rural Counties'
commitment to environmental stewardship, the RCRC Board
of Directors adopted the following policy on March 21,
supports producer responsibility for financing and
arranging the collection and recycling of their
products at end-of-life. Producer
responsibility removed the financial burden from
local governments and makes recycling become a cost
of doing business. Placing the responsibility
with manufacturers/retailers will additionally
provide incentive for products to be redesigned in a
manner to eliminate or reduce their impact and to
increase their recyclability. RCRC prefers
producer responsibility through product take-back by
the manufacturers/retailers. RCRC will
consider the reasonable use of Advanced Recycling
Fees and Advanced Disposal Fees."
In line with this pledge, the ESJPA signed a Letter of
Agreement with the California Product Stewardship
Council (CPSC) on August 16, 2007.
No Workshops are scheduled at the time. Please
check back often for updates.
