Pharmaceuticals and Products Framework
The Cities Initiative Pharmaceuticals and Products Framework is a voluntary program through which cities endorse the concept of producer responsibility for PPCP collection and disposal. Through the Framework, the Cities Initiative and participants will aim to:
1. Reduce the amount of PPCPs that are improperly disposed of and get into our waterways;
2. Advocate for national or provincial legislation on PPCPs that advances the concept of extended producer responsibility.
3. Advocate for environmental testing of pharmaceuticals as part of U.S. and Canadian drug approval processes.
4. Help local government act where federal, state, provincial, or industry action is inadequate to address proper collection and disposal of PPCPs
