Rural Counties' Environmental Services Joint Powers Authority





  California Product Stewardship

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, 2007:


"RCRC 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.
