More and more frequently, companies are incurring penalties from states for improperly disposing of consumer products. In California, the situation is particularly acute given that the state’s hazardous waste codes are so broad that many cosmetics may be deemed “hazardous” when disposed of by a retailer. This results in elevated costs for storage, transportation and disposal – costs which may be passed on to manufacturers. This panel will examine the problem, and explore possible solutions, to this rapidly growing concern.
