PSI membership will open doors

PSI advocates for the needs of our members, which represent 47 state agencies and hundreds of local government officials. By shifting responsibility for the management of end-of-life consumer products from governments to producers, our efforts can save your agency considerable amounts of money. PSI membership also saves your agency staff resources and time, as we conduct research that incorporates global knowledge and best practices that you can learn from.

As a PSI member, you will form the core of PSI’s government agency coalition that shares information and ideas. This unified government voice will be represented by PSI in all stakeholder negotiations in the product stewardship field.

PSI Members are guided by the Principles of Product Stewardship.

Pricing

At PSI, our approach to product stewardship isn’t one size fits all. Our membership pricing is based on the population size of your agency's jurisdiction, not on more or fewer benefits. We provide real value for your dollars, and we hope you’ll agree with hundreds of state and local government officials across the U.S. that PSI membership is a great investment.

A membership term is one calendar year, and membership benefits are available to all employees at your agency. Each staff member can choose the PSI product categories of most interest to them (e.g., paint, electronics, pharmaceuticals, etc.) and the amount of information they receive.
