Description of Change

Please add the following paragraph titled Extended Producer Responsibility

Extended producer responsibility (EPR) is a waste management strategy that promotes integrating the life-cycle environmental costs associated with goods into the market price of the products. EPR is an approach for products in which producer or manufacturer' s responsibility for the product is extended to post-consumer stage of product' s life cycle, generally this entails take-back or recycling program run by manufacturer that includes the product under consideration. Apart from the manufacturer' s programs, there may also be third party programs in which a separate business may collect the product or materials and sell or transport it back to the manufacturer/producer of product. Documentation can be sought to confirm extended manufacturer responsibility or program run by third party affiliated with manufacturer in form of program brochures, specific product inclusion in program or recycling details.
