Considering Compostable and Hard to Recycle Materials
Packaging producer responsibility has typically been billed as a way to invest in the recycling system and encourage recyclability. But how can the system work for other forms of packaging, like compostable or emerging innovations that may not yet have robust markets or curbside acceptance?

Learn how different states and countries envision market flexibility to add materials into the system over time.
