California Product Stewardship Council

The California Product Stewardship Council's mission is to shift California’s product waste management system from one focused on government funded and ratepayer financed waste diversion to one that relies on producer responsibility in order to reduce public costs and drive improvements in product design that promote environmental sustainability.

Product Design and Product Stewardship

State Policies regarding product stewardship are noted on their website, in addition to Local Actions and key Products & Sectors.

The Council utilizes the following criteria for selecting the products/sectors that will be the focus of CPSC’s product stewardship efforts.

  • The cost to local governments and ratepayers for the handling and recycling/disposal of the products;
  • The quantity of the products entering the waste stream;
  • The toxicity of the product throughout its lifecycle and its relevance to solid waste reduction, and hazardous waste and water quality pollutant reduction priorities.
  • The potential for private sector participation in voluntary product stewardship programs and activities;
  • The potential for mandatory action or legislative support to encourage the development of product stewardship programs;
  • The potential for innovation in design that results in an environmentally-sound and sustainable product.
