Connecticut Awards $180,000 to the Product Stewardship Institute!

Connecticut, one of the currently 32 states nationwide that have adopted some form of product and producer responsibility legislation, has entered into a three-year partnership with Overbrook-grantee Product Stewardship Institute (PSI) to develop policies for placing responsibility on the manufacturers of certain products to safely dispose of or recycle the products at the end of their useful life. The products at issue, which include carpeting, batteries, packaging, and fertilizers, all have potentially harmful byproducts and environmental effects, and the disposal costs of which currently fall on taxpayers.
