Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR)

The EPA estimates that approximately 75% of today's waste stream comes from manufactured products. EPR offers a solution to this issue by engaging producers in the lifecycle management of their products and to take responsibility for the proper management of products. The Lomita City Council approved a resolution in support of EPR at their January 7, 2013 meeting.
