AF&PA Urges Colorado Governor Polis To Veto EPR Scheme AF&PA’s Vice President of Industry Affairs Terry Webber issued the following statement in response to the Colo- rado General Assembly passing HB22-1355, which would create an EPR program for paper and packaging products: “Colorado’s ‘Producer Responsibility Program for Re- cycling’ ignores the fact that paper recycling is a success. More paper by weight gets recycled from municipal waste streams each year than aluminum, glass, steel and plastic combined. EPR could shift the economic burden of new recycling regulations from municipalities to Coloradans. These added costs would especially hurt small business- es and low-income households. “We urge Governor Polis to veto HB22-1355. An EPR scheme is not the right pol- icy approach for sustainable paper products. Colorado should instead focus on addressing underfunded and un- derdeveloped recycling programs.” AICC Canada/CCCA Schedules Corrugated Connections In October AICC Canada/CCCA has announced that its Corrugated Connections 2022 Tabletop Conference will take place at the The Design Exchange in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, on October 27th, 2022.
