Indisposable Live: Reuse in EPR

March 15, 2023 , 2:00 pm 3:30 pm EDT

With momentum surging in state legislatures to tackle the growing waste crisis, we face a pivotal opportunity to catalyze the new reuse economy. Join Upstream and friends for our first livestream of 2023 as we explore how best to incorporate waste prevention and reuse into one of the most popular waste policies — Extended Producer Responsibility. Strong EPR policies should support a just transition to a circular economy that prioritizes reuse.

Upstream’s Policy Director, Sydney Harris, will provide an overview of our new Principles for Reuse/Refill in EPR and DRS and host a conversation with special guest panelists who craft and support EPR legislation – including Jennifer Navarra, Program Director for Zero Waste Hawaiʻi Island; Will Grassle, Associate for Policy & Programs at the Product Stewardship Institute; McKenna Morrigan, Policy Advisor at Seattle Public Utilities; and David Allaway, Senior Policy Analyst at the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality’s Materials Management Program.
