VIDEO: Maine Product Stewardship Bill Signed Into Law

March 30, 2010 — Maine Governor John Baldacci signed a first-in-the-nation framework product stewardship law. The law creates a systematic approach for identifying troublesome products in the waste stream for new product stewardship programs which assign end-of-life recovery and recycling costs to product manufacturers.
