Packaging Advisory Committee
Also known as:
Minnesota Packaging Advisory Committee
Minnesota Pollution Control Agency Packaging Advisory Committee
Active dates:September 1980 - June 1982
Established by the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency
Function: The Packaging Advisory Committee has been tasked with assisting in establishing a program to implement state policies on packaging in the solid waste stream.
In September of 1980, an Advisory Committee was formed by the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) to assist the MPCA in establishing the packaging program. Members were drawn from the ranks of labor, industry and consumer-environmental groups. The need for an Advisory Committee arose from the controversial nature of some aspects of the packaging program, particularly the packaging review process. The MPCA believed that the ideas and suggestions of interested persons would help them determine how to best allocate resources for the program and how to best administer the program.
The Advisory Committee held 11 meetings. For a summary of those meetings, please see the report linked below.
