Recycling Credits

‚ÄčIf a manufacturer exceeds their 80 percent requirement, the excess is carried over as a recycling credit that can be used for future years.

As of July 2009, a manufacturer can use this carryover credit to meet up to 25 percent of its annual recycling obligation. The credits don't expire, and the manufacturer may sell them to another manufacturer, if desired.
