What’s next for extended producer responsibility: An update from Colorado

On June 2, 2022, Colorado’s extended producer responsibility (EPR) bill, HB 22-1355, was signed, setting forth the motion to improve the state’s 15 percent recycling rate. Recycle Colorado’s 2022 Summit for Recycling in Aurora was packed with attendees from across the state.

Resa Dimino, managing partner at SignalFire Group and managing principal at Resource Recycling Systems, wrote a two-part series about the law and its impact. In part 1, she spoke to attendees about the nuances of EPR and what it might mean for producers. In part 2, she discussed the basics of how states can implement EPR programs, starting with legislation.
