Our strategy is to help all local governments and other stakeholders in New York State to speak with a strong voice to promote product stewardship, also known as extended producer responsibility (EPR).

The NYPSC Stakeholders Listserv is a two-way, moderated list for all who wish to stay apprised of NYPSC activities and issues.

Items posted to this list will be relevant to NYPSC’s mission:

"To promote product stewardship, also known as extended producer responsibility (EPR), as the priority policy for solid waste management, thereby shifting our waste management system from one focused on government funded and ratepayer financed waste diversion to one that relies on product stewardship in order to reduce public costs and drive improvements in product and packaging design that promote environmental sustainability."
