In your fiscal planning processes, please consider allowing for or requesting an ongoing amount for annual membership with the Product Stewardship Institute (PSI). Supporting PSI will ultimately save money for local governments while growing recycling programs for a variety of hazardous and hard-to-recycle materials.

PSI is a national non-profit environmental institute, working with state and local government agencies to partner with manufacturers, retailers, environmental groups, federal agencies, and other key stakeholders to reduce the health and environmental impacts of consumer products, and to share responsibility for end-of-life solutions for those consumer products. PSI has helped many states to successfully propose and adopt product stewardship laws, including the Illinois Electronics Recycling and Reuse Act.

Please consider adding this small ongoing expense to your budget, if possible. All of our contributions will add up, leading to the growth of cost-effective and resource-conscious programs and policies in 2017 and beyond. Whether you want to help design programs or just get the latests news, there is a membership level for you!

To join, each entity must sign the Letter of Agreement to become a Member or Partner of ILPSC.
