Hearing on Maine’s producer responsibility framework

The State of Maine has the most producer responsibility laws in the United States. Now Maine may become the first state to adopt comprehensive “framework” producer responsibility legislation that is, setting up a process to apply the principles of producer responsibility to numerous problem products. On Friday January 22nd the Maine Natural Resources Committee will hold a hearing on LD 1631, An Act to Provide Leadership Regarding the Responsible Recycling of Consumer Products.
