Packaging Stewardship Works

All of us want to recycle responsibly and expect industry and government to do their part to manage packaging waste.

A Packaging Stewardship Program is the solution. Packaging Stewardship makes packaging producers responsible for what happens to packaging after it is sold and used and will ensure we build and maintain a safe and efficient recycling system.

Get the Facts

Support Packaging Stewardship legislation.

HB36 will create a Packaging Stewardship system in Maryland, where packing producers pay a small fee to build and fund recycling and composting infrastructure to manage discarded packaging responsibly. With oversight from local and state officials, a Packaging Stewardship system will allow the state and industry to align on a unified plan to mitigate Maryland’s packaging waste sustainably.
