New Paradigm for Recycling Featured on Morning Show

Brendan Adamczyk of the Product Stewardship Institute (PSI) will visit the “Morning Show” on September 23rd.
Host Mary Jacobsen will interview Adamczyk, an associate for policy and programs with PSI, about a recently passed Maine law that the non-profit organization helped to pass, which will make large companies pay for the cost of recycling their packaging.
Recycling reform is needed now more than ever, according to PSI, because outdated waste management systems contribute to greenhouse gas emissions which exacerbate climate change.
The passage of “extended producer responsibility” laws such as the Maine law – one of which is pending now in Massachusetts — creates a “new paradigm” for recycling by offering corporations financial incentives to avoid making cheap, nonrecyclable packaging, thereby moving responsibility from consumers and municipalities “upstream” to the producers.
“The Morning Show” airs Thursday at 9 a.m. on Channel 9 and WJOP (FM 96.3) and live streams on YouTube (click on YouTube at NCMHub.org). After broadcast, look on the YouTube Playlist for “The Morning Show.” Each show is also available on the Sound Cloud (click on the cloud at NCMHub.org).
