GLRPPR Sector Resource: Medical Waste: Product Stewardship -- Extended Producer Responsiblity

Title:
Medical Waste: Product Stewardship -- Extended Producer Responsiblity

Abstract:
Resource conservation has become an important issue internationally, especially in communities suffering from economic difficulty. Resource conservation is dependent on markets, locations willing to accept used materials and reprocess them to put them back on the market, or turn the materials into something else for resale.
