PSI's Services for Consumers

What We Do for You

FOR CONSUMERS

You want to do the right thing. You've got a pile of batteries that can't go in the trash or recycling bin. And you want your old cellphone to find new life. But! You don't know where to take them. Sound familiar?

At PSI, we get that you need convenient ways to recycle the tricky stuff. We create programs that make it easy -- so you can drop off those batteries and electronics at the store on your next shopping trip.

We also pass laws that make product producers fund and run these programs. We don't think it's fair for these companies to profit from your purchases, then make you pay for the waste as a taxpayer.

Tackle plastic waste

8 of the top 10 most littered items are food service plastics like straws, bags, and bottles. So, we created an all-in-one guide to help restaurants reduce single-use plastics. Use your power as a consumer -- share it with your local eateries!
