Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR)

Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) Workshop - October 23. The UNSM held an EPR workshop on October 23 with 85 participants in attendance. During the workshop, the Environment Minister announced that if it moves forward on EPR for the collection and processing of paper and packaging, it will be the full model. This means industry will fund 100 per cent of the costs but also maintain control.  Workshop presentations including the Minister's remarks may be found as a link at the bottom of this page.  You are encouraged to learn as much as you can about EPR as it is being proposed as a means to enhance the environmental and economic sustainability of Nova Scotia’s solid waste management programs and shift the financial burden of delivering these services away from municipalities.
