EPR stands for extended producers’ responsibility i.e brand owners, importers, producers, or manufacturers are responsible for the treatment and disposal of their post-consumer products. They are required to maintain a proper EPR Action plan to collect back the plastic waste generated due to their products.
Extended producer responsibility, refers to the responsibility for the management of the disposal of products by producers once those products are designated as no longer useful by consumers. Our main objective is to develop an effective and efficient system that takes care of the collection, segregation, and transportation of the material to the waste disposal facility which is approved by the SPCB and CPCB as a PRO Agency. These materials are also used in cement kilns, pyrolysis, for road construction and recycling centers, on the basis of their quality and price.
Tackling the plastic problem is utterly important. Cities in India need a very strict and robust plastic waste management system so as to protect their environment. This involves the following steps which can collectively solve the plastic waste problem in the country.
The plastic waste generated in bulk production is extremely harmful to the environment, especially when it is dumped into the grounds or pollution-causing garbage dumps. Hence it is necessary to treat and recycle it before it causes harm and deteriorates the soil and its livelihood. Therefore, following EPR rules is mandatory and requires complete cooperation.
By providing Plastic EPR Services, our aim is to help organizations meet obligations under PWM Rules by building the Extended producer responsibility plan and working on modalities for the waste collection system.
Looking at the alarming volumes of MLP waste (Multi-Layered Plastic), the Plastic Waste Management (PWM) Rules were passed in 2016 making it a mandate to phase out all non-recyclable and multi-layered plastic (MLPs) within 2 years. In the following years “multi-layered plastic which is non-recyclable or non-energy recoverable or with no alternate use” were banned.
All Bulk producers and packaging brand owners must meet their market target by channeling the plastic (recyclable or non-recyclable multilayer plastic (MLP)) and be responsible for recycling it, which means that all the generated waste is recycled under conditions that display no harm to the environment.
