Supervisors Back Medicine Disposal Program

Oct 5, 2016

Sonoma County Supervisors this week signaled their intention to apply the concept of Extended Producer Responsibility to pharmaceuticals, through a new ordinance to require the safe collection of extra or unwanted medicines.

While industry resistance persists, there is clear public support for the Extended Producer Responsibility approach advanced by county supervisors. The Water Agency's Susan Keach provided some figures for that, too.

This comes as no surprise to the California Product Stewardship Council's Heidi Sanborn.
