Question (8) Have you heard of the term Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) ?
(  ) Yes / (X) No
In essence, Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) takes financial responsibility off of taxpayers for the disposal of a product after it has been used and puts the onus on the company who has produced the product to take it back and dispose of it properly. By putting the cost/ responsibility back on the producer of the product, it would ensure that products are made from materials that are capable of being recycled/ composted. This would reduce the amount of packaging and increase the ability of the items to be recycled. This in turn would have a significantly positive effect on the environment, by reducing waste in landfills.

Question (9) Would you participate in EPR if it were voluntary?
(  ) Definitely
(X) Possibly
(  ) No
(  ) N/A
