We invite everyone to listen to our webinar on solar panel recycling in California, featuring information from residents, solar installers, and local government.


Learn about the current state of solar panel recycling and information on future recycling in California. CPSC is leading two solar panel recycling pilots in the City of Santa Monica and Butte County (CalRecycle funded) and conducted market research in San Mateo County. Webinar presenters shared data from resident surveys, solar installer interviews, and plans for local solar panel collection events.


The webinar was hosted on Feb 6, 2020 by the California Product Stewardship Council (CPSC) and funded by CalRecycle and San Mateo Office of Sustainability.

Solar Panel Recycling in CA - February 6, 2020

    What is extended producer responsibility (EPR)?

    Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR), also known as Product Stewardship, is a strategy to place a shared responsibility for end-of-life product management on the producers, and all entities involved in the product chain, instead of the general public; while encouraging product design changes that minimize a negative impact on human health and the environment at every stage of the product's lifecycle. This allows the costs of treatment and disposal to be incorporated into the total cost of a product. It places primary responsibility on the producer, or brand owner, who makes design and marketing decisions. It also creates a setting for markets to emerge that truly reflect the environmental impacts of a product, and to which producers and consumers respond.
