    Rationale

    This classification supports one aspect of Extended Producer Responsibility: product reclamation. It encourages a closed-loop life cycle approach to product design methodologies and management. End-of-use is a pivotal point in the life-cycle of a product from a production-consumption management perspective. Reclamation services may be offered separately or in combination as a product.
