NYS Considering Extended Provider Responsibility (EPR) Law - Your Action Needed!

New York State Considering Extended Provider Responsibility (EPR) Law for Paper Manufacturers, Printers, and Packaging Suppliers – Get Involved or Face New Costs
The New York State Legislature is considering passage of a law that would establish an Extended Provider Responsibility requirement as part of the state’s environmental regulations. This measure, S.1185A/A.5801, would significantly increase costs to manufacturers and suppliers of the following Covered Products:

  • containers and packaging (flexible or rigid, paper, cartons, plastic, glass or metal and more)
  • most paper products (paper, flyers, brochures, catalogs, directories, newspapers, magazines and more)
  • Plastic containers, packaging, and labels (rigid, PET, PE, PVC, PS, polycoated fiber, flexible plastics and more)
Who is impacted by this: This legislation, if enacted, will impact most companies in New York State who produce a printed product or packaging materials, so take action today to communicate your opposition. 

This proposed law is currently in the New York State Senate Committee on Environmental Conservation and New York Assembly Environmental Conservation Committee.

This bill will impact your company!  Printing Industries Alliance has prepared a sample that companies can use to weigh in with their elected representatives on this issue.
