This legislation is intended to put the burden back on the manufacturers to produce products with less packaging and fewer hazardous components by making the manufacturers bear the cost of recycling these products. Currently in New York State there are two Product Stewardship Laws. The Electronic Equipment Recycling & Reuse Law went in to effect in April 2011 and the Rechargeable Battery Recycling Law went in to effect June 2011.
